Saddle Hills County is made up of 5 volunteer fire departments, located in Bonanza, Blueberry, Happy Valley, Savanna and Woking and is served by approximately 120 volunteer first responders, including MFRs. 

In 2022, our volunteers have served a total 3,188.5 hours, so far! For context, that's equivalent to 133 days, or roughly 1/3 of a year.

This year volunteers who have reached milestones in their careers received medals and certificates in commermoration of their service, both at the Volunteer Appreciation BBQ this summer and, for those that couldn't attend, at their Christmas suppers throughout December. See below for a full list of these volunteers and their awards.

We are incredibly grateful for all the hard work they do to keep us safe and would like to say thank you on behalf of Saddle Hills County.
