The Didsbury Fire Department (DFD), located at 2700 - 19 Street, is a volunteer department whose members are "on-call" 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The DFD provides a wide range of services to the Town and surrounding areas. These services include, but are not limited to: fire suppression (structural, vehicle and wildland), assisting Alberta Health Services with medical calls (first and/or co-response), responding to and investigating alarm bell calls (fire and carbon monoxide alarms), motor vehicle collisions, and providing mutual aid to our neighboring municipalities.
The DFD meets every Wednesday evening from 7:00 pm to approximately 9:00 pm, during which time we are continually training and improving the skills necessary to serve our community.
JOIN THE DIDSBURY VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT!
The DFD is continually looking for new applications and individuals who are interested in serving the Town of Didsbury and surrounding Mountain View County.
Interested applicants should be physically and mentally fit, and should be willing and able to attend calls whether it be day or night. No previous training is required, although First Aid/CPR and any other related safety courses are an asset.
DFD has an in-house Rookie Training Program that will provide you with the necessary skills prior to issuing you a pager. The DFD tries to run the Rookie Training Programs various times throughout the year, depending on whether there are enough applicants.
Applications can be picked up at the Fire Hall or can be completed online. Completed applications are to be dropped off at the Fire Hall on any Wednesday evening between the hours of 7:00 pm and 9:00 pm.
