Note: There are rare instances when your emergency call to the Fire Department may not be answered immediately because the NRRM does not have a dedicated 24-hour dispatch service such as 911.When emergency calls are received in Fire Department between 4pm and 8am, the phones are manned by an on-duty Fire Fighter. Should the on-duty Fire Fighter receive an emergency call, his/her priority is responding to this call. Until this call is complete and appropriate services have been paged (doing so includes calling a secondary Fire Fighter into the station), your call may not get answered immediately - please hang up and call again.


Northern Rockies Fire Rescue is a composite department comprised of Fire Chief, Deputy Fire Chief, five Career IAFF (International Association of Fire Fighters) Firefighters, a Fire administration assistant and up to 20 paid-on-call fire fighters. This highly competent team of professionals proudly serves more than 6,000 people in a fire district of approximately 45 square miles.

The department operates three pumpers, one quint, and one rescue unit out of one station and provides protection to a large industrial area and both rural and urban residential areas. We have an extensive wildland-urban interface, with rural subdivisions nestled among the spruce and aspen forest prevalent in the north. 

We also provide a proactive prevention program of inspections and education for students and adults in our community. We visit businesses and schools on a regular basis and offer training to the public in areas such as fire extinguisher operation and safety.

John Petropoulos was a constable with the Calgary Police Service and died at the age of 32 when he responded to a call at an unsafe workplace. While investigating a break and enter, John stepped onto a false ceiling and fell to his death because there was no safety railing in place to warn him of the danger. Since 2000, the John Petropoulos Memorial Fund has been educating the public about the importance of keeping workplaces safe for everyone, including emergency responders (fire, police, and EMS personnel).
