The Halton Hills Fire Department is looking for new members to join its team.

The part-time firefighting positions are needed to work out of the Acton station on Churchill Road.

“Firefighting is a diverse and challenging position, said Fire Chief Jon Rehill. “Working in this field provides so many personal rewards and a great deal of satisfaction. I invite all qualified applicants to join our team.”

Rehill said firefighters face new and challenging situations every day and is a job like no other. On any given day staff fight fires, perform rescues, administer first aid, deal with hazardous materials, protect property and are instrumental in saving lives.

Deputy Chief Martin Mills echoed the comments, noting that: “Being a firefighter requires dedication and commitment. Regardless of who you are or where you come from, being passionate about this work is what will bring you success. I’m very hopeful we will get a terrific response to our call out for recruits.”

Among the eligibility criteria, potential applicants should live within 6 km of the Acton fire station and have a Grade 12 diploma or the educational equivalent. Additional information is available in the 2024 part-time career guide posted on the Town’s website.
