The High River Fire Department answered an average of 2.5 calls a day in 2022.

According to stats presented to town council, the fire department received 944 calls last year compared to 918 the year before.

Of those 944 calls, 628 were for medical assistance, more than all other calls combined, including fires, where there were just 49.

It was also a momentous year as Mayor Craig Snodgrass cut the ribbon on the extensively renovated Fire Hall.

The department also received a new, longer ladder truck which was put to use soon after it was received battling a blaze on the roof at the Emerson Lane Block.

In the first year of Protective Services being back under the Town's control there were 725 calls for service or two a day.

They issued 191 Courtesy Tags, 177 Warnings and 64 Tickets that brought in $15,890.

In 2023 they're looking to address traffic and intersection safety concerns, work with FCSS on homelessness and coming up with a strategy to increase patrols on the Happy Trails.
