VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTERS

The Municipal District of Taber Regional Fire Services is seeking motivated and committed individuals who live and work within our communities to join our dedicated Volunteer Firefighters.

We are seeking both men and women candidates who:

  • Are available to respond during the day time or at night time
  • Are interested in learning new skills including Standard First Aid and CPR certificate and fire fighter certifications.
  • Reside or work within close proximity of your local Fire Department and must be able to attend meetings and training courses.

ARE YOU PREPARED TO CONSIDER A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO CONTRIBUTE TO YOUR COMMUNITY? THIS ISN’T ABOUT JUST FIGHTING FIRES.

HERE ARE A FEW OF THE FUN THINGS WE DO WITHIN OUR COMMUNITY:

  • School Tours
  • Fire Prevention Week (October)
  • Volunteer Fire Fighter Week (May)
  • Fundraising for worthy community

THE MD OF TABER REGIONAL FIRE SERVICE IS NOW RECRUITING MEMBERS FOR OUR NEW JUNIOR FIREFIGHTER PROGRAM

The Junior Firefighter Program is a training program for young men and women, ages 16 -18, interested in serving their community and preparing to become active Firefighters upon reaching the age of 18. At age 18, the Junior Firefighter may be eligible to switch over to full volunteer member status. The best way to see what it’s like to be a volunteer firefighter is to hear the perspectives of people who do it each day. Meet a few folks who serve their community in this unique way and learn what their work is really like. Being a volunteer firefighter is about a lot more than just putting out fires. It’s an opportunity to learn cutting edge skills that prepare you to help members of your community when they need it most.

Being a volunteer firefighter is not about what you look like, what degree you have, or where you come from. It is about one thing: heart. Do you have what it takes to serve your community?
