Sturgeon County now recruiting paid on-call firefighters

Published on Aug 14, 2023

Sturgeon County Emergency Services is expanding its team of paid on-call firefighters at its stations throughout the County.

Our firefighters provide a critical service in the community. Their dedication means we are here to respond to emergency calls any time of day, every day of the year,” said Fire Chief Pat Mahoney. “While we already have a highly skilled team of paid on-call firefighters, regular recruitment helps ensure we can answer emergency calls and meet the needs of the community when they need us most.”

Paid on-call firefighters receive professional firefighter training at no cost. This training is recognized across North America and can jumpstart a rewarding career in firefighting. Individuals living in or around Bon Accord, Calahoo, Legal, Namao or Redwater are encouraged to apply by Sept. 6, 2023.

Paid on-call firefighters are paid hourly for responding to emergencies, attending weekly training, attending courses, and participating in approved public engagement activities; pay starts at $21.47 per hour. All uniforms and equipment are provided, and no previous experience is needed.
