WHAT SORT OF COMMITMENT IS THIS?
Right up front let's be clear: we have some pretty BIG asks of you as a potential recruit.
We ask that you commit 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.
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.
WHAT ABOUT TRAINING AND EQUIPMENT?
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.
"It feels good to be part of the action. When you see smoke over the horizon, it’s great to actually be in the know and be able to do something about it."
WHAT WILL MY DUTIES LOOK LIKE?
Lac Ste. Anne County Fire Services deals with more than 700 emergency calls per year. 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 the provision of aid to the County's area partner municipalities as well as to many other requests.
"It can be scary. You’re gonna fail. You’re gonna have times when you’re not sure it’s not for you. But as soon as you get on that truck and go to your first call, you’ll be hooked."
WHAT'S MY COMPENSATION AS A 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.
