Emergency Response Services (ERS)

YEG has a highly trained Emergency Response Services (ERS) team on duty 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to respond to any fire or medical emergency. Airport emergency services are regulated by Transport Canada.


Airport firefighters are equipped to respond instantly to aircraft emergencies. They are trained to fight fires and provide an emergency medical response.

Special services

Team members also respond to dangerous goods incidents or motor vehicle accidents. They provide aircraft-related services such as standing by for “hot refueling” of airliners.

The team’s duties also include wildlife control, runway patrols and airport security patrols. They also teach first aid, risk management and emergency preparedness to other employees.


The ERS team handles all calls for medical aid. All ERS members are Emergency Medical Responders registered with the Alberta College of Paramedics.
