Controlled Burns 
To report a Controlled Burn (large or small), please call fire dispatch at 306-338-2345. There is no charge.
The following information will be required:
  • Land location
  • Type of burn
  • Time limit of burn
  • Contact number
*This is a mandatory requirement and must be called in before all fires are set. This will eliminate land owners from receiving an unwanted bill from the fire association from the trucks and men responding to the scene. 

Group Tours
Groups of four and more can schedule a tour to meet Sparky (friendly mascot) and learn more about the equipment, trucks and facility. For more information or to book your experience, please call Harold Narfason or any of the volunteer members.  

Volunteerism / Donations
Every year the fire department organizes fundraising events to help with the purchase of much needed additional equipment. If you would like to get involved or donate, please contact any one of the volunteer fire brigade. Every donation, large or small, as well as donated personal time is greatly appreciated!
