Miniota Volunteer Fire Department
Besides providing fire fighting services, we have vehicle extrication training and equipment including the jaws of life.
Fire prevention and education are of up most importance to us and we are committed in getting the message across to the public. We provide home inspections upon request. Our goal is to inform and not to lecture. There is no enforcement, just advise and to provide information.
We are very proud to be an Emergency Medical Agency in which we are under contract with the Regional Health Authority to provide medical services along with the Ambulance Service. We have 9 of our members trained as Emergency Medial Technicians (EMTs) and they continually train to meet the provincial standards.
A rescue toboggan was recently purchased to provide rescue services in rough terrain where our other apparatus is not able to reach. We can use it in the winter time behind a snowmobile or in summer time pulled by our side by side ATV. This equipment is kept in an enclosed trailer which can be deployed in minutes. This side by side has drastically improved fire fighting efforts during grass, brush & stubble fires because of the accessibility factor in challenging terrain and with a small fire suppression unit on the back of the ATV.
