Hosmer Fire

At the heart of every fire department is its people. The Hosmer Fire Department is made up of a team of volunteer firefighters with a common goal of protecting and serving their community.  The Department provides fire and rescue services that enhance public safety and preserve property.  Without a dedicated team of volunteers, these services would not be available and we are currently recruiting for new members in Hosmer.

Members of the Elk Valley & South Country Rural Fire Service will be in Hosmer February 16 doing a door to door awareness campaign, answering questions and providing information.

There will be free interactive training nights on March 8 (practice on simulated fire) and April 5 (fire extinguisher education and practice) at 7:00pm at the Hosmer Fire Hall.

The most critical need right now is to have volunteers signed up and getting trained. The department needs to have 15 firefighters on the roster and currently, the numbers have dropped to seven. Without enough committed volunteers, there will be no fire service.

The deadline for applications to be submitted is April 15, 2016.
