Fire halls & apparatus

The Airdrie Fire Department (AFD) has more then 60 dedicated men and women and three fire stations. Each fire station has a different complement of trucks and staffing dependant on the station's use, proximity to the highway, location and access over the Canadian Pacific railway.
