We protect, preserve and restore public safety through programs and services of the Lesser Slave Regional Fire Service, 911, and emergency disaster response systems. We do this with a staff of 125 dedicated paid on-call and volunteer firefighters as well as nine full-time staff. LSR Fire Service works in partnership with community agencies, social partnerships, and a network of provincial and federal departments and emergency management agencies.
Integrated fire services under one command.
The LSR Fire Service is unique within Alberta as a regional integrated and multi-jurisdictional volunteer fire department operated under one administration and command. It has a full-time Fire Chief, Deputy Fire Chief, Administrative Assistant, and Maintenance Officer. Being a regional fire department, it also has a full-time Deputy Chief of Rural Operations, plus four members of the FireSmart crew.
