Fort Liard Volunteer Fire Department
Your volunteer firefighters are volunteers who give of their time, come out at all hours of the day or night, and put it on the line to protect lives and property. They don’t get paid, and are there for you! Please appreciate them. Next time you see one of them, thank them. It would mean a lot.
The house they save could be yours!
If you are interested in joining our department, drop by the Fire Hall and pick up an application. Our weekly training takes place on Wednesday's at 6:30 p.m.
The Fort Liard Hamlet Council recognizes the contribution volunteers have made in providing fire fighting services to the community.
