Education & Emergency Services

Hastings is proud to offer Hastings Public School to young families in the area and is a member of the Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board 
HPS offers an education for children in JK through to and including 8th grade and is a small school that excels in student-teacher relationships and community involvement. 

Make sure you watch for advertising that promotes their very popular annual play, in the spring, and their community BBQ’s and scholastic book sales!

Teenagers, in Hastings, are very fortunate to be able to attend Secondary schools throughout Northumberland County and Peterborough County. Campbellford District High School offers education for those in grades 9 through 12 and N.D.H.S in Norwood offers the same opportunity. Both schools are small and offer numerous specialized programs to fit your child’s goals. Our kids are also offered the option to attend high schools in Cobourg & Peterborough PLUS Norwood & Campbellford provide the option of separate schools for elementary school aged children!

The Municipality of Trent Hills is home to Campbellford Memorial Hospital and subscribe to the 911 emergency services. 

Trent Hills residents are lucky to have a large volunteer fire department with three individual stations operating in the Municipality. The Fire Chief can be reached at or phoned at (705) 653-1900 extension 222 and our Deputy Station Chief, John Austin, can be contacted by calling the Victoria Street Hastings Station (705) 696-2127 OR (705) 653-6388 (don’t forget to buy a burn permit if you want to have a bonfire!)

We depend on the Ontario Provincial Police to provide law enforcement and they can be reached by calling 911 (for emergencies) or (705) 653-3300. Visit the Northumberland County O.P.P (Campbellford Detachment) at 20 Industrial Drive, Campbellford for all your security check needs and questions regarding provincial laws.
