White City Fire Department

Over the past 40 years the White City Fire Department has provided fire services and medical aid to White City, Emerald Park and area.  The Department has worked hard – together with residents from both White City and Emerald Park – to form a first-class fire department with dedicated volunteers.

The White City Fire Department is committed to serving the community and surrounding area through excellence in fire prevention, education, community protection and safety programs.

Under the direction of Fire Chief Randy Schulz and Deputy Chiefs Jeff Allers and Mathieu Theriault, a force of over 25 members proudly protects White City, and surrounding area, residents.

The Town’s long-term plans include ensuring our fire protection and medical response services meets the needs of residents now and in the future.  The Town is fully committed to supporting and growing the White City Fire Department as a high-quality service to our residents and as a mutual aid partner to our neighbours.

Our Training Programs

Beginning June 2021, our Fire Department commenced training and the certification of our members for NFPA 1001 Level 1 or 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 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 part of a larger ten-acre site allocated for future training grounds. 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 members of White City Fire Department up to a provincially and internationally recognized standard with NFPA 1001 certification.
