Buckland Fire and Rescue

Buckland Fire and Rescue

Buckland Fire and Rescue provides Fire and Emergency services to the RM of Buckland and Wahpeton Dakota Nation.
Buckland Fire and Rescue is also the primary provider of emergency rescues services (vehicle collision, Auto Extraction and hazardous material emergencies) to Montreal Lake and Sturgeon Lake First Nation and the Hamlet of Weyakwin.

The Rapid Response Fire Truck would be a much lighter vehicle that would allow us to attend scenes more quickly than we can with our current Fire Truck.
With off-road capabilities increasing our mobility, the truck would allow us to travel down rougher roads or terrain to reach fires or emergency scenes and to shuttle manpower and resources like water when required.

The truck will also be equipped with a pump and roll function that allows fire fighters to drive along a grass fire flame front while at the same time spraying water, increasing our ability to put the fire out quickly.
Having the ability to move or shuttle water directly to a fire scene with a reliable off-road capable truck will allow us to more aggressively fight fires which would help reduce the threat to the public and property.
Besides accessing fires, the truck would also be able to attend farm, motor vehicle or ATV accidents in places we cannot currently drive with our larger vehicles.

Buckland Fire and Rescue would like to acknowledge Northern Lights Community Development Corporation for their generous contribution.
