Our History

In September 2005, Wildcat Fire Services – a family owned and operated wildland urban interface fire fighting business was founded.

Over the years, we have grown and have gained contracts with Alberta Environment & Sustainable Resource Development (ESRD), Saskatchewan Forestry and Manitoba Forestry for fighting urban interface wildland fires, providing Value protection services, dozer boss operations, and most recently Value protection coordinators and hotshot services.

We also work very closely with BC Wildfire Service to provide appropriate assets and consultations.
