The RDNO has three Fire Departments; BX-Swan Lake, Lumby & District and Silver Star.  All three fire departments use a system that pays their firefighters based on their attendance to calls, meetings, training, and practices referred to as paid-on-call (POC) firefighters. All training and equipment are provided, including some exciting hands-on live fire training!
