Volunteer Fire Department

The Turtleford Volunteer Fire Department is jointly supported by both the Town of Turtleford and the R.M. of Mervin. The Fire Hall is located in the centre of town at 201 Hwy. 26. In 2012, a new Truck was purchased, followed by a new Command Unit in 2014. Members have also been trained to land STARS and the Department is equiped with a STARS Fuel Trailer. The Department meets regularly on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month for  training and practices. New members are always welcome.

Junior Firefighter's Program

The Junior Firefighter's Program allows High School students the opportunity to be involved in the Fire Department. Participants must be 15 years of age. They are trained by the Department, receiving the same training as regular members. Junior members also respond to calls along with regular members and attend Department meetings. Past participants have continued on to become emegency response workers in other communities or to become regular members of the Turtleford Department. 

 

Firefighter's Ball

The Firefighter's Ball is an annual event that started in 2007. The evening features supper, entertainment, and a dance all held in the Community Centre. The Ball is not only a fundraiser, but a chance for the community to recognize all of the dedication, hard work, and sacrifices of Volunteer Fire Department and their families. The Ball usually falls on the last Saturday in April.
