Firefighter/ EMR in Alberta Beach, AB
on 15 June 2021
Versatile work environment
A great Station to get experience with municipal, industrial, and wildland experience. Plenty of room for advancement and learning with the multitude of courses they offer. This job is a good way to get your foot in the door for the fire service and gain experience.

Waste of time
An absolute waste of time . They promise you a dream of working industrial fire and medical Jobs but fail to mention that they don't pay you anywhere near industry standard. They give you a hope of "achieving" the next level of employment ( lead or whatever they call it now) and never actually get you there - regardless of doing their required courses. The cheif has had allegations against him multiple times. They expect you to work away for litteraly no pay unless you're on a job. The cultural is terrible. The only pro is that you do 2 weeks on 2 off and some of the guys that you work with are pretty cool. This should be advertised as a municipal paid on call position. Be aware as they have changed their name. Stay away from onoway

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.
