Fire Departments

Kneehill County residents are served by 6 fire stations including hall locations in the Village of Acme, Village of Carbon, Village of Linden, Town of Trochu, Town of Three Hills and Kneehill County’s own Hamlet of Torrington.

Kneehill County currently contracts out fire services under a Master Fire Agreement with these towns and villages, and operates the Torrington Fire Hall under Kneehill County’s umbrella.

Fire Prevention Week


fpw-logo-820x312 (1)

This year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere,” works to educate people about three basic but essential steps to take to reduce the likelihood of having a fire––and how to escape safely in the event of one:

LOOK
Look for places fire could start. Take a good look around your home. Identify potential fire hazards and take care of them.

LISTEN
Listen for the sound of the smoke alarm. You could have only minutes to escape safely once the smoke alarm sounds. Go to your outside meeting place, which should be a safe distance from the home and where everyone should know to meet.

LEARN
Learn two ways out of every room and make sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily and are free of clutter.

Visit the NFPA's website for more information. 
Kneehill County would like to recognize the brave men and women who volunteer for their local Fire Department, sacrificing their time and risking their lives to ensure our homes and communities are kept safe.
Thank you to all the firefighters who serve the Kneehill County region!


Fire Training Structure


The Fire Training Structure has been installed at the Kneehill County Training Centre located at the Trochu Fire Hall. The structure was funded by the ACP Provincial grant program supporting regional initiatives, including fire services. The structure allows the fire fighters in our region to train under the real pressures of fire, heat and smoke.

A regional fire mutual aid agreement is in place for fire services within Kneehill County (including Three Hills, Torrington, Trochu, Linden, Carbon, Acme). The agreement includes cost sharing, equipment sharing and mutual aid.
