Langley City Fire Rescue Service

Paid-On-Call Firefighters


Langley City is recruiting paid-on-call firefighters to join our fire rescue service team.

Paid-on-call (POC) firefighters are members of our team who play a key role in the delivery of fire services to Langley City.  Not only do our POCs back up our career firefighters at major incidents,  POCs often respond independently to simultaneous calls for service.  POC firefighters respond to fires, rescues, medical aid, hazardous materials, and a host of other calls to aid the public.  In 2018, our POCs responded to 354 alarms.  Apart from direct support to emergency operations, our POCs contribute countless hours of volunteer time in support of community activities such as Langley Community Days.  Our POC firefighters and POC officers are trained to nationally recognized standards.

To apply you must:
  • Be at least 19 years of age on the date of your application;
  • Eligible for employment in Canada;
  • Possess a high school diploma or equivalency (i.e., G.E.D.), or a journeyman certificate; and
  • Possess a valid and subsisting Provincial driver's licence, with no more than six (6) demerit points for the past 5 years and Probationary or graduated driver’s licenses will not be accepted;
  • A POC firefighter must reside within 4 km of the Langley City fire hall located at 5785 203 Street in Langley City within 3 months (prior to completion of recruit training) of starting with the department.

Hours of work are varied as this is an on-call position. Attendance requirements are 25% for alarm page-outs and 80% for Thursday night training.

Compensation for paid on call firefighters range between:  $21.04 – $33.06 per hour. Paid on call firefighters receive WorkSafe coverage, life insurance, uniforms and eligibility for employee wellness passes with our Recreation, Culture and Community Services Department.

It is the responsibility of each interested applicant to ensure that his or her application is received by Langley City Fire Rescue Service before the application deadline of 4:00 p. m. on Friday, February 22, 2019.
