Auxiliary

The Fire Rescue Service is one of the most unique and challenging work environments known today. It is this diversity that inspires women and men to enter the Fire Rescue Service as an Auxiliary (paid on call) firefighter. Auxiliary Firefighters role is to support the full-time firefighters during paged incidents. This support role is an important strategy in our duties to serve the community.

Firefighters have more than just a desire to help people. They also have courage and dedication, assertiveness and a willingness to learn new skills, face new challenges and work as part of a team. Our service is one which calls on its members to perform dirty strenuous work, often in uncertain and hazardous environments. We can do it safely because of the quality equipment and detailed training we receive. There is a sense of accomplishment after controlling a building fire, joy and elation when a child is rescued, compassion for victims, and fulfillment in teaching fire safety.

The bottom line in our business is measured by the prevention of loss of life, pain and suffering and property damage. We exist and are prepared for one reason only, to provide service to the community. If you feel you have what it takes to meet the challenges of our business, we welcome you to contact us.
