Interested in becoming a member?
The Sexsmith Fire Department typically hires only once per year, and is committed to recruiting talented and motivated individuals, who possess a high level of integrity and have a desire to serve our community. No training is required to apply, and members will be given quality training. Volunteer Firefighters come from all walks of life such as schoolteachers, tradesmen, students, and oil field workers. Some have even used their skills and training to pursue a full-time career in the fire service. There are minimum attendance standards, and the more time members invest, the more they receive back such as training opportunities, friendships, job satisfaction, and valuable life skills and experience. Being a Volunteer Firefighter gives you the fulfillment of helping the community and is rewarding, exciting, and fun.
Due to an increased interest in our fire department, we are currently fully staffed with 25 firefighters and we will not be recruiting until the spring of 2021 or as the need arises.
