Reimbursements to Ontario municipalities for the provision of emergency services in eligible areas. Funding is intended for projects and activities related to fire protection and rescue operations in the province's unincorporated areas. Reimbursement rates will be based on the service rates used by the Ministry of Transportation for fire departments' responses on provincial highways.
The following call types may be eligible for payment:
Motor vehicle collisions occurring on roads that are not considered provincial highways by the Ministry of Transportation
Hazmat (excluding those calls occurring on roads maintained by the Ministry of Transportation)
Rescue (defined as an emergency incident primarily involving activities directed at locating and rescuing endangered persons and removing those persons to a safe location. This could also include but is not limited to the provisions of emergency medical care).
