JOIN THE DIDSBURY FIRE DEPARTMENT!
The DFD is continually looking for new applications and individuals who are interested in serving the Town of Didsbury and surrounding Mountain View County.
Interested applicants should be physically and mentally fit, and should be willing and able to attend calls at all times of day or night. No previous training is required, although First Aid/CPR and any other related safety courses are an asset.
The DFD has a Rookie Training Program that will provide you with the necessary skills prior to issuing you a pager.
The DFD holds a recruitment drive once or twice per year, depending on number of interested applicants.
The Didsbury Fire Department's Fire Cadet program is sponsored by Atco and was created to give students in grade 12 an opportunity to explore future career paths. It is a great chance for students seeking to learn more about the emergency services, including EMS, Police, and Fire.
Fire Cadets go through the same recruit training program that members go through and, upon graduating from high school and turning 18, the students will receive a pager and will be able to respond to emergencies.
The requirements to apply to become a Fire Cadet:
Be a grade 12 student
Be available to take part in Wednesday training nights for hands-on practice at the Didsbury Fire Station
