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 has been a quiet spring so far with just 3 calls to report:

  • Midafternoon on April 20 a call came in of a grassfire in the ditch of Highway #20 south of Centerview Road. BFD crews extinguished the fire and notified Fortis to check power poles in the affected area.

  • On April 21 at 2:27 pm eight members responded to a call at a Bentley home. The resident informed the Fire Chief something had been cooking on the stove and had spilled over, triggering the alarm. A check was conducted and no fire was evident. 

  • On the evening of May 1 eleven firefighters were sent to the Bentley Waste Transfer Station where a fire was burning in the burn pit. The controlled burn was being managed and was left in the care of the dump's supervisor.

Your department has been keeping busy attending various training courses,
doing safety training at the hall, conducting hall tours and providing services in our
community. On May 14 we had some fun at Camp L.G. Barnes on Gull Lake
instructing counsellors on the proper use of fire extinguishers.

We are also very pleased to introduce a new member of the BFD, Mr. Greg Holdstock. Welcome to the department Greg, we are happy to have you on board!
