Now hiring paid on-call firefighters
Members of each fire department, usually residents of the department's fire suppression area, have a strong desire to help others and serve their communities.
Volunteer firefighters train for emergency response when communities call. The call may come at any time, and in almost every situation, sometimes under stressful and emotional circumstances.
Our volunteers tell us about the tremendous rewards that come with their work. We know there are other people out there with the same courage, commitment and compassion.
We want to welcome you into the team at your local fire hall.
Weekly training sessions ensure the best possible response time, knowledge of the most appropriate techniques for each situation and familiarization with the very specialized equipment required for firefighting and safety. Firefighters are members of the community with a will to improve their skills while protecting life and property.
- A Valid Driver’s License (minimum);
- Minimum 18 years of age;
- Physically able to perform tasks and duties of the job;
- Able to commit to training;
- Live and/or work in the response area.
Fire Practice is on Tuesday at 7 PM for most CSRD volunteer fire departments. However, Falkland practices on Wednesdays and Silver Creek on Thursday nights.
Potential recruits are always welcome to come, watch and find out more.
Other types of positions may be available in your local fire department if you’d like to contribute your talents through other opportunities. Examples include: administration, fundraising, or public education.
If you are interested in volunteering or simply want more information about your local fire department, please contact the area Fire Chief or the CSRD Fire Services Coordinator, Sean Coubrough at 250.833.5955. You can also email email@example.com
