About the Authority

The Bonnyville Regional Fire Authority was formed in 1996 as a “joint agency” to provide fire protection services to the M.D. of Bonnyville and the Town of Bonnyville. The current makeup of the Authority includes Fire Stations at Goodridge, Glendon, Iron River, Bonnyville, Lacorey, Fort Kent and Ardmore and a seasonal station at Crane Lake. In addition, the Cold Lake Fire Department provides services to the eastern edge of the M.D. under a contract with the BRFA.

In 2005, the Authority took over the provision of 911/dispatch services for the area from Wainwright and District Ambulance Society. In 2011 we expanded our 911/dispatch service to Smoky Lake County and St. Paul County. Our current staff level is 6 full time staff, 5 part time staff, 4 casual staff and approximately 160 volunteers.

The Bonnyville Regional Fire Authority is administered by a Board of Directors, which is comprised of an equal number of representatives from the two sponsoring Municipalities. The Mayor of Bonnyville and the Reeve of the M.D. of Bonnyville alternate as Chair and Vice-Chair. Our annual operating budget is $1.14 million, which is 55% funded by the two Municipalities.
