Our History

The long and proud history of firefighters in Alberta could not be told without first exploring the history of volunteer firefighters in our province. Dating back to before the Second World War, volunteer firefighters have been protecting residents and communities across Alberta with whatever manpower and know-how they have available. Now the driving force behind nearly every fire hall in the province, volunteer firefighters are the highly trained men and women that keep Alberta’s emergency services running, and our province’s residents and communities safe.
