The Municipal District of Foothills Fire Department is comprised of five stations covering an area of 3,600 square kilometres. Each station is responsible for fire and medical response to its own zone plus comes to the assistance of other stations when necessary through the region’s Mutual Aid Agreement. The MD’s 911dispatch call centre is found in Black Diamond. Approximately 150 firefighters serve the area, some full-time and some volunteer, providing 24-hour coverage for 19,000 citizens. 

The MD of Foothills also has several dedicated volunteer guardians who keep a watchful eye out for signs of fire. The MD’s Fire Guardian Map details station response areas as well as their associated fire guardians.
