The Didsbury Fire Department (DFD) is located at 2700 - 19 Street. 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 wild-land), 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 9:30 pm, during which time we are continually training and improving the skills necessary to serve our community.
JOIN THE DIDSBURY 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 a Rookie Training Program that will provide you with the necessary skills prior to issuing you a pager. The DFD holds a recruitment drive once to twice per year depending on whether there are enough interested applicants.
Applications can be picked up at the Town Office or can be downloaded HERE. Completed applications are to be dropped off at the Town Office during regular business hours, or submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org
THE DIDSBURY FIRE DEPARTMENT'S FIRE CADET PROGRAM
The Didsbury Fire Department's Fire Cadet program is sponsored by Atco and was created to give students in grade 12 an opportunity to explore future career paths. It is a great chance for students seeking to learn more about the emergency services including EMS, Police, and Fire.
Fire Cadets will go through the same recruit training program that our members go through and, upon graduating from high school and turning 18, the students will receive a pager and will be able to respond to emergencies.
The requirements to apply are that the student is in grade 12 and available to take part in Wednesday training nights for hands-on practice at the Didsbury Fire Station.
