Volunteer Application Form
If you are interested in serving your community by becoming a volunteer firefighter, be sure to submit an application!
If you own or occupy a complex building (any building other than a single family residence or ancillary structure such as a shed), you need to submit a Pre-Incident Plan. This is required by May 1, 2016. After June 30, 2016, the Fire Department will only provide internal fire suppression on simple buildings and those complex buildings for which a Pre-Incident Plan has been accepted.
The City of Enderby directly delivers emergency management during major incidents. This may include Emergency Operations Centre activation, emergency social services (delivered under contract with Red Cross), evacuations, and coordination of resources and agencies involved in response and recovery.

Citizens on Patrol
Working in teams and using marked vehicles, Citizens on Patrol (COP) volunteers drive through local neighbourhoods observing and reporting on any criminal or suspicious activity. COP volunteers serve as extra “eyes and ears” that assist in deterring and preventing crime. COP volunteers report all suspicious, criminal and nuisance behaviour they observe. The COP program is delivered by the City of Enderby with the support from the Enderby RCMP.
For more information or to apply to become a COP volunteer, please visit the Enderby Citizens on Patrol page.
