Great if you like working for free!
Broken promises and they only watch out for the employees who are part of the family. If you live far you better have money to pay for your own gas and when you get there you better have money to pay for your own food. When you finish a course they hold the certificate over your head until they are satisfied with the amount of free labor that you have worked.

Company that needs work
No regard for covid during 2020 6 beds per room in fire hall at ab beach industrial equipment not up to par and over all a pretty bad environment to even call a work place they have a huge turn over in personnel and anyone how stays develops a god complex and honestly believes they are God's gift to man
Firefighter/medic in Onoway, AB

Loved working there
I worked and trained at NWFR and would loved to work for them again. They came through on every promise they made, you are paid exactly how it is outlined in the hiring package, you can get a lot of training from them and advance up within the company. The Chiefs passion is teaching anything about firefighting. The work is hard! It’s long days, you’re working from home, you are pushed and stretched till you become a better firefighter and or medic. I am not related to the family that runs the company this was my experience working with them. The officers are incredibly passionate about teaching, firefighting and ensuring they are providing excellent care to their patients.

Broken promises
Ever wonder why their alway hiring, definitely something to think about before leaving your current job to give them a try. High turnover of employees, when you start they make lots of promises but don’t always follow through. There are way better options to get your start in firefighting. If it seems too good to be true it usually is

Definition of Nepotism
High ranking firefighters are all directly related to the chief. You won't get paid what you're stated. You're worked like a dog basically to make the chief more money. This fire station is paid by the local government. Something shady is going on over at Northwest/onoway regional fire department.
