  • Mission Goals

    1. 24/7 Emergency Response
    We aim to provide the best coverage both day and night through fulltime, casual, and volunteer firefighters. Since most volunteers work a day job Monday – Friday and are unable to attend emergency calls, we have supplemented our response model with casual firefighters, 3 fulltime firefighters, and 2 fulltime lieutenants that staff the two main fire halls, Station 12 and Station 10, in the county Monday – Friday 7:00am – 5:00pm.
    2. Comprehensive Response Services
    We aim to provide Yellowhead County with the highest quality Emergency Response Services including Fire Response, Vehicle Extrication, Shore-Based Water Rescue, Embankment Rescue, Medical First Responder, and Wildland Urban Interface Firefighting.
    3. Superior Tanker Shuttle Service
    We aim to become accredited with the Fire Insurance Underwriters of Canada for their Superior Tanker Shuttle Service. Property owners in communities with accredited Superior Tanker Shuttle Service are eligible for improved property insurance rates similar to those in communities with municipal-type water supply systems.
    4. Skilled First Responders
    We aim to provide the most up to date, advanced training and equipment to our First Responders. This allows them to do their job in the most efficient and safe manner possible. We strive for competence, compassion, respect, and integrity in the service field.
