Lesser Slave Regional Fire Service
As of Monday, June 7th, 2021 the Lesser Slave Regional Fire Service has completed its Firehall Waterline Upgrade Project. This will vastly improve the time required to fill the firetrucks which ensures an improved and constant emergency preparedness. Read on...
We protect, preserve, and restore public safety through programs and services of the Lesser Slave Regional Fire Service, 911, and Emergency Management Response Systems. We do this with a staff of 125 dedicated paid-on call Firefighters, and eight fulltime staff. This is achieved through partnerships with community agencies, social partnerships, and a network of Provincial and Federal allied departments and emergency management agencies.
The Lesser Slave Regional Fire Service (LSRFS) is unique within the Province of Alberta, as a regional integrated and multi-jurisdictional paid-on call fire service operated under one administration and command. The LSRFS headquarters is located in the Town of Slave Lake. It has a full time Regional Fire Chief, Regional Deputy Fire Chief, Administrative Assistant, a Maintenance Coordinator, a Lieutenant and three Firefighters.
There are a total of five halls in the Region with the greatest distance between halls is 120km. These five halls serve and protect residents, business, industry and tourists across over 10,000km2 through paid-on call Firefighters with an average of 500 calls per year ranging from:
- Dangerous Goods / Hazardous Materials Incidents
- Emergency Management Response
- Industrial Incidents
- Motor Vehicle Collisions
- Structure Fires
- Technical Rescue (Rope, Ice)
- Water Rescue
- Wildland Fires
- Fire Code Inspections
- Fire Origin and Cause Investigations
- Regional, Provincial and Inter-Provincial Deployments
- Structural Protection
The Lesser Slave Regional Fire Service is also certified by the Safety Codes Council as an Accredited Agency in the Province of Alberta. This allows for the certified Departments members to go beyond the borders of the Town of Slave Lake and the MD of Lesser Slave River to conduct Fire Code Inspections and Fire Origin & Cause Investigations, throughout the Province of Alberta under contract.
