Staff at the City: Chestermere Fire Services

Whether you see them at a local hockey game, volunteering at a block party or training at the Fire Hall, the men and women of Chestermere Fire Services (CFS) live by the principles of Pride, Professionalism and Proficiency.

In addition to fire response, Chestermere’s Firefighters provide an array of emergency services to the public including chemical and hazardous materials release, motor vehicle collision assistance, ice and water rescue, weather-related emergency help and occasional animal rescues.

“Caring for the safety of our community and each other is at the heart of our service,” says Fire Chief Brian Pomrenke. “We are there for the best and sometimes the worst moments of peoples’ lives, which is a humbling responsibility we take very seriously.”

Committed to the safety and development of our community, the Fire Department also educates the community about fire safety and prevention, disaster preparedness and safety code enforcement.

In 2016, CFS launched the Honourary Junior Firefighter Program to engage youth and their parents in fire prevention. Chestermere kids prepared a fire escape plan and colouring page. Upon presentation to a firefighter, the kids were given a certificate signed by Mayor Matthews and the Fire Chief. Be sure to watch for this program again next October.

Throughout the winter season, CFS crews would like to remind both kids and parents to be cautious around iced surfaces. All ice is considered dangerous, regardless of the depth or time of the year. If you do need assistance, the crews have been fully trained in ice rescue and are available anytime at 9-1-1. 

Next time you see these local heroes around the community, be sure to say hello!
