See an update on what type of calls the Winnipeg Fire Paramedics Station 22 (1567 Waverley St.) and Station 23 (880 Dalhousie on Pembina) have been responding to over the past 5 years. These two stations predominately serve south and southwest Winnipeg – and service the Waverley West ward. These stations also respond to calls on the Perimeter Highway.  It’s incredible the types of calls fire paramedics attend to!  The population growth of our area has grown considerably and is being reflected in the volume of calls for service.

We have a new portable station opening this fall in Eaglewood Park and the new permanent fire paramedic station opening in 2026  –  I want to thank the first responders for all they do to keep families in our communities safe.  And for saving Pancake the cat who survived a house fire, and whose family ultimately gave him to the Humane Society, and then we adopted him!
