White City Fire Department - 1001 Training

Since the inception of the White City Fire Department in 1982 we have always strived to serve the communities of White City, Emerald Park, RM of Edenwold and surrounding areas to the best of our abilities. To our Former Fire Chiefs: Howard Slack, Richard Thiele, Trevor Truman, and Darrel Liebrecht – a sincere THANK YOU for everything that you’ve done and for paving the way to where we are at today!

Under the leadership of Chief Schulz, we are proud to announce, beginning June 2021, our Fire Department will commence training and the certification of our members for NFPA 1001 Level 1-2. This certification is a professional designation recognized provincially and internationally with standards utilized in career departments like Regina Fire and Protective Services. We are excited that we are able to deliver this content from several certified instructors and fire service professionals who are already members of WCFD. These instructors will volunteer several additional hours to their already busy schedules to ensure each of the 28 members on our Fire Department will get world class instruction and certification.

• Scott Francis - 1001 Level 2 Certified Instructor
• Reagan Coppicus - 1001 Level 2 Certified Instructor
• Murray Wright - 1001 Level 2 Certified Instructor
• Brad Smith - Level 1 Certified Instructor
• Cal Knowles – Level 300 ISC Canada Certified Instructor

The certification training will take place at the White City Fire Training Grounds – a two-acre area located south of White City. Over the past few years, WCFD has been working to develop and establish training grounds that will include structures for search and rescue, live fire training, vehicle extrication, defensive driving and hazmat scenarios with the ability to expand in the future. The training grounds provides WCFD with a well-equipped and safe location to perform routine training, train new recruits and now to bring the level of certification for all 28 members of White City Fire Department up to a provincially and internationally recognized standard with NFPA 1001 certification.

White City Fire Department is a team made up of brave, dedicated men and women. Our members are neighbours, business owners and community leaders that will respond to any emergency day or night. We hope to introduce the members of WCFD to the community in the near future so residents can get to know us and feel free to introduce yourself if you see us in the community.

On behalf of the entire WCFD team – be safe out there! If you have any questions contact WCFD at rschulz@whitecity.ca.
