Fire Hall Expansion Improves Fire Services for High River
What’s both hot and cool? Our new Fire Hall, of course! As the most significant expansion and renovation the Fire Hall has seen it its life span, the newly improved building will enhance efficiency and improve the health and safety of our fire staff.

Some new features include new ventilation
equipment, additional office and living spaces and an area designed to clean and decontaminate gear.
