Bentley District Fire Department

Volunteer | Dedication | Perserverance

The Bentley District Fire Department is comprised of 17 committed volunteers, dedicated to serving our community. Since its establishment, the Bentley Fire Department has continued to preserve the safety and security of community members within its 1000 sq km area district. From fighting fires, to medical emergency responses, and motor vehicle accidents, our volunteers are highly trained and experienced to react and aid in many emergency situations. Training every Monday night as well as some weekends and responding to over 70 emergency calls per year, the Bentley District Fire Department's volunteers devote their lives to helping others.

This past month your fire department has been sent to several calls:

  •  At 6:48 pm on October 26, thirteen members responded to a call of smoke alarms ringing at a Bentley residence. The hallway smoke detector was activated as the homeowners cooking went awry.
  • On October 31 at 10:22 in the morning, BFD crews raced to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on Highway #12 and RR 28-2 east of Bentley. A vehicle had left the road and hit an approach which deployed the airbags. The driver was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The vehicle was safely disabled and the area cleaned up. Thank you to the passersby who stopped to help.
  • A call of an outside fire came in on November 1 at about 3 pm. Crews arrived at the  scene on Aspelund Road and RR 28-2 to find the land renter monitoring a controlled burn. This was left in the supervisor's care.
  • On November 16 at 5:11 pm a call was received of a carbon monoxide alarm ringing at a Bentley home. Crews arrived at the house and detected elevated levels so ATCO Gas was notified. The scene was left in the care of the ATCO technician once it was deemed safe.
  • Just a half-hour later that same evening the BFD was sent to a fire in the ditch on the south side of Highway #12 west of town. Upon arrival it was discovered a couch was ablaze. Crews doused the furniture and extinguished the burn. Unfortunately, the sofa didn't make it.
  • And on November 17 at 1:06 pm, twelve members were called to a structure fire in Bentley. A detached garage was fully involved upon our arrival and firefighters quickly knocked the fire down to keep it from spreading to the adjacent house. Fortunately no one was injured.
