History

  • 1904 - the fire department began with a fire brigade and a horse-drawn water pump. Since its inception, the brigade has continued to grow and increase the level and quality of service to the community.
  • 1999 - Leduc County Fire Services and the City of Leduc Fire Services co-hosted the Alberta Fire Chiefs Association Conference. In preparation for the opening ceremonies, members of the city fire services formed a Guard of Honour and Colour Party.
  • 2000 - members of the City of Leduc Fire Brigade developed and approved the official colours (flag) of the brigade. These colours are carried with pride and honour in functions where the Guard of Honour is present.
  • 2004 - the Fire Service evolved to provide an integrated fire and emergency medical service with cross-trained Firefighter-Paramedics and EMTs.
  • Currently, our fire department provides service to a population base of over 27,000 residents in the city of Leduc and to rural areas west, south and east of the city.
