Message from the Fire Chief

Welcome to the Foothills Fire Department Website. I am humbled by the depth and breadth of knowledge and understanding of my staff. For those of you that do not know me, I am somewhat technologically illiterate. A lot of this process is very foreign to me and the truth be known that I trusted my staff to do this task. I would like to firstly thank my staff for the hard work that was done to complete this website. I would like to thank the family and friends of my staff in all their support that they give their spouses and friends so that we can accomplish what we all love. Thank you to the MD of Foothills Council and Senior Administration for putting up with my crazy ideas, talk and general demeanor. I might come off a little weird to some of the office people.

I truly have fun at this job! There are of course many ups and downs with plenty of mistakes, or as I like to say “Learning Opportunities”, which have kept me on the straight and narrow. Firefighting is a wonderful and ever changing act of futility. We react to emergencies after they have happened and try to bring a little calm to the chaos. We do our best to provide customer service on every avenue as possible. This includes MD of Foothills newsletters and website, facebook, twitter, and now this wonderful website. Read about us, like us, follow us, and feed on our information. We want to be here as more than just a Fire Department. We will strive to be the best, but not number one.

Thank you and please thank my staff when you see them!

Jim Smith, Fire Chief
