Halifax Regional Fire & Emergency Recognizes Volunteer Firefighters


(Wednesday, April 18, 2012) – It’s National Volunteer Week and Halifax Regional Fire & Emergency would like to thank all of its volunteer firefighters.

Across HRM, approximately 650 professional and dedicated volunteer firefighters respond to over 5,000 emergency calls each year, from medical incidents, natural disasters, public assistance, motor vehicle collisions, brush fires, and structural fires.

“Volunteer firefighters add to the heart and soul of many communities throughout HRM,” says Doug Trussler, Chief Director. “It’s an honour to give them this deserved recognition for their continued dedication.”

Halifax Regional Fire & Emergency extends a heartfelt thank you to all our volunteers.

Volunteer recruitment campaigns are ongoing. Applications can be picked up from local fire stations or at Headquarters, 3rd floor, Alderney Gate, Dartmouth.
