Crossfield Fire Department

The Crossfield Fire Department is comprised of 40 firefighters from around the community who respond to an average 550 calls for service each year.  

Our firefighters continually participate in training to ensure they can provide the best response possible with the upmost professionalism. The Crossfield Fire Department provides response within the Town of Crossfield as well as coverage to surrounding areas with mutual-aid agreements.

The Crossfield Fire Department is involved in the community through initiatives such as the Christmas Food Hampers and other community events. 

Each year the fire department spreads extra cheer to the community with a special visit to each home in town on Christmas Eve. Just make sure to leave a light on.
