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 three incidents;

  • Shortly after 5 pm on January 11 five members were sent on a Mutual Aid call to assist Lacombe Fire Department with traffic control at a serious 2-vehicle accident on Highway #2.
  • In the early morning hours of January 14 Bentley responded to another Mutual Aid call, this time in Eckville where a single-family home and garage were on fire. Five hours were spent extinguishing the blaze, protecting neighbouring homes, salvage and overhaul and traffic control. ATCO was also notified as there was a live power line down over the residence's driveway. The BFD was eventually released by Eckville Command.
  • And on January 16 crews were sent to investigate a fire on RR 1-0, just south of Highway #12. A passerby had spotted smoke in the area. The reported area was scouted but no smoke was found so firefighters returned to quarters.
