We understand that many people have questions and concerns about repairs to their property and fences that were damaged as a result of fire operations.
We have developed a plan to repair or replace agricultural infrastructure that was lost or damaged due to firefighting operations. This includes barbed wire fences, corrals, outbuildings or panels etc.
If your property was damaged as a direct result of the fire, please call your insurance company.
If damage was caused by heavy equipment or firefighters while they were carrying out the functions of mitigating the fire such as dozer guards, please click the link below to fill out the Agriculture Infrastructure Damage Report.
A municipal representative will reach out with next steps that will include an assessment of the property to determine what form of compensation will be provided.

Alberta 12 Year Service Medal and Service Bars
The Alberta Government initiated the Alberta Emergency Services Medal to recognize Alberta Emergency Services personnel who selflessly dedicated their time, talents, and, in some cases, their lives to the service of others. The medal pays tribute to outstanding full-time, part-time, and volunteer members who have committed 12 or more years to emergency services in Alberta.
They have recently expanded the service medals to include:
Bronze Bar = 22 Years
Silver Bar= 32 Years
Gold Bar= 40 Years
LT Kent Fuson received his 12 Year Alberta Service Bar Medal
Fire Fighter Murray Frank received his 22 Year Alberta Service Bar Medal ( Bronze Bar)
Chief Tom Thomson received his 22 Year Alberta Service Bar Medal (Bronze Bar)
Formed around 1955, the fire department had a volunteer Fire Chief and approximately ten firefighters protecting the area. The department used an old truck with a triplex pump that was later used for street flushing. Drayton Valley/Brazeau County Fire Services currently has 4 volunteer/paid on-call firefighters assigned to Station 1 in Lodgepole, 21 volunteer/paid on-call firefighters assigned to Station 2 in Breton and, 40 volunteer/paid on-call firefighters at Station 3 in Drayton Valley.
Station 3 in Drayton Valley also serves as headquarters for the region’s fire services. With a total staffing level of 65 men and women, the composite fire service staff in the region includes a full-time Fire Chief, a Deputy Fire Chief in charge of Operations, a Deputy Fire Chief in charge of Training, Inspection and Investigation, a Captain in charge of Maintenance Coordination and an Administrative Assistant.
