Release date: 
October 15, 2020

Kamloops, BC—Kamloops Fire Rescue (KFR) is looking for fit, motivated citizens who are committed to serving their community as paid on-call firefighters at one of three fire stations:

  • Fire Station No. 4, 615 Porterfield Road, serving Westsyde
  • Fire Station No. 5, Heffley Creek Road, serving Rayleigh and Heffley Creek
  • Fire Station No. 6, 5300 Dallas Drive, serving Dallas and Barnhartvale

KFR is looking for candidates who live within the service areas of each of these stations to minimize response times in the event of an emergency.

Paid on-call firefighters support the services provided by full-time firefighters in an effort to prevent loss of life or property. Duties and responsibilities include responding to fires and emergencies, routine apparatus maintenance, and weekly training.

Interested applicants can visit Fire Station No. 1 at 1205 Summit Drive, Monday–Friday, 8:00 am–4:00 pm, to pick up a comprehensive manual that outlines the criteria and testing regimen required for selection as a paid on-call firefighter. Please respect the COVID-19 protocols that are in place when picking up a manual.

Training is provided to successful applicants; however, preference will be given to those with prior National Fire Protection Association accreditation. The deadline to apply is November 15, 2020. The screening and application process will take approximately eight weeks, after which successful applicants will be contacted.
