Have you ever watched "Backdraft" or "Ladder 49" and dreamt of saving property and lives?

Are you working full time and unable
to make the change?

Have you seen firsthand the destruction smoke and fire can wreak on a neighbour's life?

You can make a difference in your community and you can do it by only committing a few hours a month!

Now Recruiting!

Firefighters work hard, but we play hard too. Our members hang out with each other, from the pancake breakfasts in the summer to road tripping in the mountains. Not to mention trips to take training together, or just hanging out cleaning gear at the hall. There's no "I" in team, but there's no "alone" either. We're friends, buddies and someone to help when you need a hand.

What's in it for you?

You can receive the full fire/rescue/medical training, make a huge difference in your community and may even get an honorarium for training and calls!

The Penhold Fire Department offers you the same training programs that full-time firefighters receive, but at a pace that meets your need. The courses are offered at no cost to you.

Most of your new skills will transfer to different departments if you move to a new community. About 80 percent of Alberta’s firefighters are members of volunteer departments, with only a few departments in the province composed of full-time staff - it pays to volunteer!
