Priddis Fire Department (PFD) is a volunteer/paid on call department. We provide fire, rescue, and emergency medical first response care to the M.D. of Foothills. We also respond to emergencies under a service contract with the City of Calgary. Our service area consists of approximately 150 square miles with a population of 2900 (est).
The department is known as Station 6 in the regional emergency response plan. Our Fire Hall is located on Highway 22 about 1km west of the Priddis Golf Course turn off. We have approximately 20 volunteer members at present. We have 4 fire response vehicles, a pumper, a tanker/pumper, a bush buggy, and a command vehicle. The department has had an interesting history. From its start in the maintenance shed next to the M.D. transfer station, to the operations of today, the department has grown and developed in many ways.
Priddis Fire Department enjoys some of the most productive and advanced training going. The Foothills Fire Department is a member of the CREST (Calgary Regional Emergency Service Training partnership) allowing the Priddis Fire Department to team up with many of the departments in and around the Calgary area to share training costs and resources. All of our training programs meet the National Fire Protection Association standards.
New members are always welcome. IN PARTICULAR we require VOLUNTEERS WHO ARE AVAILABLE FOR FIRE CALLOUTS DURING THE DAY!
