TO REPORT AN EMERGENCY CALL 9-1-1

VOLUNTEER

Vulcan County Emergency Services is always looking for volunteers who want to give back to their community.  Within our training facilities our volunteers are trained to the NFPA 1001 level 2, that means there is no need to travel to Alberta fire training school in Lakeland College.  There is the opportunity to train medically from First Aid to Medical First Responder (MFR), and financial assistance for EMR and EMT-A.  This will prepare you for the emergencies that we are called to.  If you are not physically able to become a firefighter or do not want to be on the fire ground we are willing to use volunteers to help with fire prevention week, a youth awareness program, or there may be some other area that you can offer assistance, please contact us by filling out the form here.
