The Redcliff Fire Department has a staff of approximately 20-24, dedicated, committed and caring, paid-on-call members whose primary concerns are to protect the lives, property, well-being and environment of the residents and business owners/operators in the Town of Redcliff in a safe and responsible manner. The town also employs a Fire Chief in a part-time position to manage the people and affairs of the department.
The department does periodically recruit new members, and while a background in firefighting is an asset, the department will hire persons without experience and facilitate the training that is required.
While the department is not presently recruiting, the town does encourage anyone interested in becoming a member of the paid-on-call department to monitor the Town’s social media platforms and website for news of openings.
The requirements to being hired by the fire department are that the person applying is physically fit, at least 18 years of age, have a valid drivers licence, and that the person must either live or work in the town.
The Town of Redcliff department is a volunteer department that provides primary fire and emergency medical services to the Town. The department has a volunteer staff of approximately 21 active members managed by a part-time Chief.

Active recruitments are posted on the Employment Page, however, we encourage anyone who might be interested to fill out an application at any time which will be considered during recruitment initiatives.

The Fire Chief may, upon written application in a prescribed form, issue a fireworks ignition permit and, in doing so, may impose any terms, conditions or restrictions that he may consider necessary in order to ensure the safety of the citizens of the Town.
