What to Expect as a LSACFS Volunteer Firefighter

Being a Paid-on-Call Firefighter means that as a member of the LSACFS team, you receive monetary compensation for the hours you are part of an emergency response, as well as for other assigned duties by the Fire Station Officers. As a LSACFS Firefighter, the County will provide you with all the training necessary to meet requirements as per the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Standards that Lac Ste. Anne County adheres to.

Along with all the training – AT NO COST TO YOU – you will be provided with all the personal protective equipment needed to protect you while on any emergency scene – AT NO COST TO YOU. Join a dynamic and inspiring team of like-minded individuals who have the desire to help when help is needed, anytime, anywhere.

Our ASK of you, as a potential recruit, is BIG and we cannot hide this fact. From you we need commitment to being away from your family and private life for training, meetings, emergency responses every week. We ask that you live in the response area for the Fire Station you are part of. We ask that you confirm with your physician that the physical requirements of being a Firefighter are something that you are able to do. And, last but by no means least, we ask that you show pride in yourself for the selfless commitment you have in wanting to help – your community, your family, your friends and your neighbours, as well as the strangers you haven’t yet met.

In 2016, LSACFS Fire Stations have the potential to attend to well over 500 emergency calls as the call volume sits at over 350 calls as of August. These calls will range from motor vehicle collisions, medical assistance (as part of Alberta Health Services Medical First Response Program), structure fires, wildland/grass/brush fires, vehicle fires, alarm calls, and aid to the County’s area partner municipalities as well as to many other requests.

Promoting Safe Fire practices Across the County 

Are you thinking about burning that big brush pile in the back 40 that’s been there for a bunch of years? Getting rid of that pile of wood from the old shed you tore down this fall? Or maybe you just bought your new property and are planning to clear space to build your new home. Whatever kind of burning you may be thinking about, you need to be aware that you have some responsibilities as a County resident to follow the Lac Ste. Anne County Fire Bylaw that will benefit both you, your neighbours and the travelling public.

Smoke from burning piles can often affect visibility for those driving in the area, and can cause physical discomfort for some. Pre-planning your burning can help mitigate these problems and we have just the solution for you!

By contacting your local County Fire Guardian, you will have access to great knowledge about where to build your burn piles, how big and how far apart to build them, and when the best conditions for burning are. Additionally, you’ll get the proper paperwork to avoid a possible fine for an un-permitted burn.
