Nov. 9, 2022, Alta. – Alberta’s government is reinstating its Fire Services Training Program grants to help fire departments across the province better protect their communities.

A total of $500,000 a year is provided to help fire department personnel gain knowledge and skills in a variety of topics and techniques.

The Fire Services Training Program grants are intended to supplement training supports already provided by municipalities, First Nations and Metis Settlements to their fire services departments. Because each community is different, recipients will be able to determine which training programs best suit their local needs. The grants cover a wide range of eligible costs, from basic skills training to specialized expertise such as ice water rescues and toxic materials responses.
