We are a composite department with a career Fire Chief and a career Deputy Chief. The paid on call members consist of an Assistant Chief of Safety and Accountability, three Captains, five Lieutenants, and 25 Fire Fighters.
Our apparatus consists of three engines, a tender, a light rescue with Hazmat trailer, and an ice rescue unit. We also have a mobile command unit, two command vehicles, and a utility truck.
Scope of Operation:
The fire department provides services for the Town of La Ronge, the La Ronge Airport, the Northern Village of Air Ronge and the Lac La Ronge Indian Band (8000 people). These services include, but are not limited to structural and forest fire fighting, ice and fast water rescue, automobile extrication, airport crash rescue and fire fighting, and hazardous materials response as to the level of resources available. As the nearest possible mutual aid department is approximately two hours away, we provide rescue services of auto extrication for most of northern Saskatchewan. By population comparison this is one of the busiest departments in the province.
