The Hanna Fire Department is a team of approximately 28 dedicated men and women who volunteer countless hours of their time to take course, practice and respond to emergency situations in Hanna & parts of Special Areas, under the leadership of the part time Fire Chief, David Mohl.
The fire department was established in 1912 and is currently governed by Town of Hanna Bylaw #653. It is the mission of the fire department to respond to and mitigate emergencies within the Town of Hanna and in accordance with the contractual agreements for mutual aid from surrounding municipalities and industries.
Some of the emergencies that the fire department may be asked to respond to are:
- Incidents involving fire, including structures, grassland or vehicles
- Entrapment of persons
- Unplanned releases of hazardous materials-Motor vehicle incidents
- RCMP or Medical assistance
- It is also the aim of the Fire Department to provide for the prevention of emergencies and education of the general public to ensure their safety.
