Fire & Flood Emergency Service LTD

About Us

In a rapidly changing climate, more needs to be done to prevent, prepare for, respond to, and recover from emergency events like wildfires and floods to improve resiliency to our communities, critical infrastructure, and economy

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to have a direct impact on these climate driven threats using the absolute best dual-purpose patented equipment and our expert fluid management team. Our ability for rapid response, quick set up and unmatched water delivery capability saves vital time and resources in preparing for and responding to emergencies.

Fire & Flood Emergency Services was established on May 1st, 2016. Inspired by the unfortunate wildfire crisis that devastated the city of Fort McMurray, Alberta, and the flooding of the Bow River in Calgary, Alberta. Fire & Flood’s passionate and experienced staff, with decades of experience, began testing scalable sized high-volume high pressure water systems with the aim of no other community having to experience such loss.
Fire & Flood Emergency Services Alberta base is in Red Deer County Alberta, situated on Treaty 7 land, the traditional territory of the Siksika, Kainai, Piikani, Stoney-Nakoda, and Tsuut’ina peoples. Our base in British Columbia is in Kamloops BC, and located on Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc territory within the unceded ancestral lands of the Secwépemc Nation, Secwepemcúĺecw. 

We are grateful for the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today and those who have gone before us. We make this acknowledgment with gratitude to all First Nations whose territory we reside on or are visiting.

The world has always had events like wildfires, floods and droughts; climate change will continue to make them increasingly severe. Fire & Flood’s innovative staff and technology is ready for today and preparing for tomorrow to help protect us all from future disasters, while strengthening the resilience of our communities, ecosystems, and economy. 

The visionary research and development of our All-risk patented high-volume mobile hydrant system continues to be a game changer in our ever changing climate. With numerous demonstrated abilities such as our renowned case studies of Scotch Creek, BC., Drayton Valley, AB., and Fort Smith, NWT., Fire & Flood is here to protect communities.
