JASPER, ALBERTA (CANADA) – The Jasper Fire Hall is the second firehall ever build – the first was a small, rustic log cabin constructed at the cost of $1,000 in 1914. But residents of Jasper, Alberta didn’t believe it fit in with the growing surroundings of the town and gave way to a bigger, better firehall that could also provide staff housing office, a weather bureau and the Jasper courtroom. Today, the Municipality of Jasper is protected by a volunteer fire department. When the siren sounds, our residents know to make way for the dedicated volunteers.
