Rocky View County (RVC) is looking for firefighters who are willing to join their team. RVC has put out the call looking for paid-per-call firefighters for the Irricana and Madden fire stations.

Jon Evans,  Deputy Fire Chief with Rocky View County Fire Services explained if you always wanted to become a firefighter and move up the ranks, this is a great place to start.

"I was a volunteer firefighter for five years, way back in the 90s when I was looking to get into it, and here I am currently sitting as a Deputy Fire Chief."

RVC is comprised of seven fire districts, four of which are staffed with career firefighters and three are paid-per-call firefighters, including Irricana and Madden.

"This is great if you want to give back to the community and get an interesting opportunity where you can learn new skills and forge new friendships."

Evans stated you don't need any previous experience, RVC is willing to provide the training that is needed.

"We provide them with uniforms and all of the required personal protective equipment."

Firefighters receive training in first aid, community preparedness, home safety, motor vehicle extrication, leadership, wildland protection, water/ice rescue, medical first response, and public education.  

"The objective for us is to have people that reside within 15 or so minutes from those stations where they can get notified of a call, respond to the station, pick up one of the apparatus and then respond to help their community."

According to RVC, you will qualify for annual tax credits of up to $3000
