Fire

Vulcan County Emergency Services works to lead our region to emergency preparedness.  We strive to deliver the best possible fire protection and safety services to avoid loss of life and property through prevention, education and response.  Vulcan County provides Regional Fire, Investigation, Inspection and Medical services from 6 Stations located in Arrowwood, Milo, Lomond, Vulcan, Champion, and Carmangay.    

Vulcan County Emergency Services endeavors to exceed the Alberta Code of Practice for Firefighters (2008) ensuring that all Firefighters train to the NFPA 1001 Level II Professional Firefighter standard.  Once completed, all Vulcan County Firefighters will perform annual competency skill checks demonstrating retention of knowledge and ability.  To further enhance training, Vulcan County has recently completed construction on a Fire Training Facility.  This facility will enable high angle rescue training, confined space training as well as provide a number of training scenarios to enable firefighters to be at a more proficient skill level.                                                                                                                                         

Vulcan County recently approved Bylaw 2012-039 Fire Services which outlines all aspects of fire protection as well as regulations for fire bans, burn permits, control of fire hazards, and fireworks in the County.  If you have any questions regarding fire, please see the above mentioned bylaw.
