Red Lake Fire & Rescue Service

Red Lake Fire & Rescue Service has a proud tradition of assisting residents and effectively responding to emergency situations. They are a team of dedicated full-time and volunteer personnel. The members respond to emergencies and calls for assistance from four fire stations.     
In our ongoing efforts to ensure that we are meeting the needs of our community, we are creating a 10-year community-driven plan to guide operational improvements and enhance how the service is provided throughout the community.
To accomplish this, we have teamed up with Emergency Management Group Inc. (EMG) to assist us with this initiative. EMG is a consulting firm that has worked with many fire departments in developing their fire master plans, station assessments, and fire service reviews.
To successfully gather feedback, we need your assistance and ask that you take the time to complete this survey. Your confidential responses will help to ensure focused action that continues to meet the diverse needs of all residents. 
Please complete the survey by 9th December 2022.
