2022 Survey Results: Emergency Services Costs

Thorhild County Council is exploring other options to recover emergency services costs and is seeking residents' input.

The current Emergency Services Bylaw 16-2020 outlines steps Thorhild County takes to recover costs associated with municipal emergency services that are provided on a parcel of land within or outside Thorhild County’s boundaries.

Emergency Services charges can be applied to fire incidents, motor vehicle accidents, and false alarms.

Bylaw 16-2020 authorizes Thorhild County the discretion to issue charges relating to properties where emergency services were provided to the following:

·         any person(s) contributing to a fire;

·         the occupant of the parcel;

·         the owner of the parcel;

·         the person with control over the parcel of land; and

·         the person(s) who requested emergency services.

Additional Information:
Emergency service charges vary but can exceed $100,000 for a response to a single fire-related event.  

The Fire and Emergency Services Department’s 2022 operating budget currently is $797,575, and only $300,000 is recovered in fees and charges.
