Fernie Fire Rescue held a recruitment campaign in September with the goal of significantly bolstering their ranks of Auxiliary Firefighters.
The response was great with 34 applications received for the paid-on-call position. The recruitment process culminated in January with the hiring of 10 new members for their Auxiliary ranks. This is a big boost for Fernie Fire Rescue, nearly doubling the number of Auxiliary members. They anticipate hiring additional members this spring, and continue to accept applications year round.
Their Auxiliary Firefighters assist Career Firefighters with responding to everything from structural fires, and motor vehicle incidents to high angle rope rescues and swift water rescue.
Fernie Fire Rescue looks forward to working with this promising team of new recruits.
