Haldimand County Fire needs people with a strong desire to help others.  And people with courage and dedication to the work they do.

Because this position is so important, we make sure all of our volunteer fire fighters are expertly trained and properly equipped.

So if you want to do something important for your community and are willing to take on a challenging opportunity,  being a volunteer fire fighter may be the opportunity for you. 

Haldimand County Emergency Services - Fire operates out of 11 stations strategically placed throughout the County.  As a member of this dedicated team, you will respond to firefighting and rescue operations, operate and maintain fire apparatus and equipment, and participate in public relations and education. 


What is the process? 

The process starts with the applicant submitting an application.  Applications are reviewed, divided into service areas according to fire halls.  For halls requiring recruits, the applications are forwarded to the District Chief for review.  Applicants chosen will be contacted for an interview.  After the interview process is complete, chosen applicants will be contacted to attend a physical abilities test.

If the applicant passes the physical abilities test, they will receive a conditional offer of employment with details of all the forms and medicals that need to be submitted.  In early January, an orientation of new recruits with Emergency Services staff is held and then an approximate 4-6 month recruit training program will begin.
