Information for Funeral for Firefighter Steve Gillingham:
We are asking ALL uniformed members to be seated in the church by 13:
We have adjusted the bus departures from the legion starting with first bus at 12:15
and second one at 12:30
. These times are firm.
There is limited parking at the church so we prefer uniformed members use transit to allow parking for other attendees.
All uniform members will be seated in the back as we are doing last alarm ringing of the bell outside so we will all be required to exit into parking lot.
There will be sandwiches and such at the church afterwards. The buses will be there for pickup at 15:45
to return to the legion.
We had an issue with the legion for a few hours so we will now be meeting at the St Albert Curling club (right across the road from legion) from 16:00 - 18:00
. The legion will then be available to us from 18:00
Address for the legion:

While not all emergency calls are fires our members are cross trained as Primary and Advanced Care Paramedics that work on the 2 Ambulances the City of St Albert contracts to Alberta Health Services. When a fire truck shows up to a medical call these members are also able to provide a high level of medical care as well with all Fire Engines equipped to Advanced Life Support standards.
We are also trained in Water and Ice Rescue, Dangerous Goods response. We provide public education and fire prevention to the public as well.
