Winnipeg Safety Officer 5
Winnipeg currently has 1 city-wide safety officer stationed at station 5 (very close to the geographic center of the city). Safety 5 responds to all confirmed structure fires, Hazmat, tech, and water rescue calls, Brush fires, plane and train crashes, vehicle/outside fires with exposures, MVA's with entrapment, and any other high-risk calls. The safety officer position was created in 2008 after a double LODD at a residential fire in the city. Safety 5 currently uses a 2019 Ford transit 350 and is staffed by the safety officer.
