History / Biographical
Donald W. Buchanan was born in 1908 in Lethbridge, Alberta. He was the son of Senator William Ashbury Buchanan, the publisher of the Lethbridge Herald. He studied Modern History at the University of Toronto and Oxford University. In 1934, he received a fellowship from the Carnegie Corporation to train in museum administration. Following his research fellowship, Buchanan founded the National Film Society of Canada, as well as he worked for the Canadian Radio Commission (now the CBC).
Buchanan was always involved in the arts and he was a firm believer in making the arts accessible to the public. In 1963, Donald Buchanan, and his brother Hugh, offered many fine works of art to the City of Lethbridge. This became the first significant public art collection ever to exist in Lethbridge. He believed that art was meant to be shared and enjoyed by all. After leaving the Canadian Radio Commission, Buchanan worked for the National Film Board, where he established the stills division; from 1947 until 1960 he was employed by the National Gallery of Canada, serving as director of the Industrial Design Division (1947-1953). His work with the National Industrial Design Committee and the curated the revolutionary exhibition “Design for Use in Canadian Products” (1946) which changed the standards of Canadian art.
Donald W. Buchanan served as the Associate Director of the National Gallery of Canada, and took a leave of absence to explore his own artistic endeavors of photography while travelling throughout Europe. Buchanan returned to the Gallery in 1963 as a member of its Board of Trustees, and he became the Director of the International Fine Arts Exhibition at Expo ’67 in Montreal. In the last few years of his life, his friends recall him being busier than ever, organizing the exhibition. He never was able to see the fruits of his labor, however, because of his sudden death in 1966 after being struck by a car in Ottawa. His legacy centered on the accessibility of art to the public and his impact on the art community in Lethbridge.

The Lethbridge Fire Department began in the town of Lethbridge in 1885 with the Bucket Brigade. There were several factors for this. The buildings were chiefly wood, rainfall in the area was low and the westerly winds were prevalent in the region. One factor to deter fires were the 100 foot wide streets.
The first organized fire protection was provided by the NWMP in 1886. In 1887 a volunteer hook and ladder company was formed with W. D. Whitney as chief, A. J. Scot, first assistant chief, E. J. Hoddert, second assistant chief. J. D. Higinbotham was secretary-treasurer.
When Lethbridge was incorporated as a town in 1891, the new town council had fire protection as their first order of business. In that same year a Volunteer Fire Brigade with William Colpman as chief was formed. In subsequent years other Fire Brigades were organized each with their own chief, assistant chiefs and members. The fire brigade was reorganized in 1902 and those elected became paid members.
By 1909 a professional fire department was created. The men were on duty 24 hours per day seven days per week. Minute Books were introduced by Chief Kilkenny in 1909 listing the duty officer, persons on leave, exact time of fire calls and action taken, changes in location of men and equipment. Uniforms were introduced in 1909 and in 1912 the first Firemen's Association Contest between towns took place. In 1912, the Fire Department also began the combined model of fire suppression and emergency medical services.
As the town grew incorporation was once again realized. In 1906 Lethbridge became a city. The population grew in three directions, north south and east and more fire stations were built to service the areas. No. 2 was built on the north side of the tracks at 2nd Avenue and 13th Street. A third fire hall was built in the 1960's. By 1920 the Lethbridge Fire Department was a fully professional body who could handle any emergency that occurred. Fire Prevention Programs begun as early as 1935 when Chief Lindsay introduced inspections to individual homes and fire drills began in the schools.
Through the war years, the fire department held various courses teaching military firemen to handle pumpers and large equipment. The fire Department ambulance was constantly used for transported trainee crash victims to the Galt Hospital. Following the war improvements were made to both the member numbers and equipment including a two-way radio communications system and fire alarm boxes. Restrictions on sales and use of fireworks were dealt with in the late 1950's and by the early 1970's the sale of fireworks were banned.
New fire stations were built in the 1970's. One to replace the old No. 2 which became the fire headquarters and training center located on 5th Avenue and 28th Street North and another on the west side at Jerry Potts Boulevard. The fire box system was abandoned in favor of a more effective communication-the telephone. Wooden ladders were replaced by lighter, stronger more serviceable aluminum ones.
In 1985, computers were introduced to the fire department and were used to provide a preplan of many of the larger buildings, hydrant locations, fire department connections, sprinkler controls, exits, hazards etc. City Council also approved the implementation of an advance life support program and hired the first advanced care paramedics.
In 1986 the Lethbridge Fire department celebrated its 100 anniversary. A lot of changes, improvements had occurred and with the modern fire fighting techniques many young men were becoming fire fighters to protect the public from any disasters such as fire, flood, explosion, cyclone of mechanical disaster.
1994 Police moves into its own building.
In 1998 the department hired the first female firefighter, Bonnie Williams. Her great grandfather Jack King was a Lethbridge firefighter in the 1920-30’s.
2001 fire department gets thermal imaging cameras.
2002 Chief T. Wickersham retires and the city hires Brian Cornforth as the new chief. The dispatch centre of fire/EMS merged with police dispatch to form the Public Safety Communications Centre (PSCC).
2003 Council approved $250,000 for a one-time funding for Advanced Life Support equipment. These units were placed on all frontline fire apparatus. Having advanced care paramedics on fire vehicles allow them to respond to emergency calls anywhere in the city and provide lifesaving care even when an ambulance is unavailable.
2005 Revised disaster services plan and bylaw. Plan outlines three levels of emergencies. Level one, less than eight hours and has little impact on the city. Level two, less than eight hours and moderate impact on city that may require additional support from other services. Level three, longer duration and will have high impact on the city which will require government support. Rope rescue training exercise also implemented.
2009 Alberta Health Services assumes governance of all emergency medical services (EMS) in the province. The city of Lethbridge becomes a contracted provider of EMS for the city of Lethbridge.
2011 New Headquarters (station 1) opens on 4th avenue south and renovations are completed on station 4 located at 5 avenue and 28 street north. Large grassfire starts on the Blood Reserve and threatens the west side of the city when it crosses the Oldman River on November 27 (Grey Cup day).
2012 The department celebrates 100 years providing EMS services in an integrated system. From our research, Lethbridge is the oldest integrated (fire/EMS) system in North America. A weeklong celebration of events were planned and an art piece was commissioned to remember the event. September 10 another large grassfire starts on the Blood Reserve and threatens the west side of the city and the town of Coalhurst when it crosses the Oldman River.
2013 flooding in High River and Calgary creates significant damage to the respective communities. Lethbridge sends numerous individuals to assist in the recovery efforts. Lethbridge also experiences high water but infrastructure is protected.
2014 The department receives EMS accreditation through Accreditation Canada – first integrated service in Canada to achieve accreditation. December - Chief B. Cornforth takes a position with Edmonton Fire Rescue Service.
2015 Rich Hildebrand is promoted to chief of the department. The Fire Smart Program begins to be implemented as a way to decrease fire risk in the transition zone where wild land and urban development meet.
2016 Fort McMurray wildfires damage huge areas of the city and forces the evacuation of 88,000 people. Lethbridge sends individuals to provide incident management support, critical incident stress management (CISM) support, dispatch assistance and inspection services over several weeks.
2017 Council gives support to build another station on the west side of the city. When station 2 was first built on the west side of the city in 1980 there was a population of around 4000 however today the west side population is approaching 40 000. Hiring will take place in 2018, 1019 and 2020 to have staffing ready to fill the hall in 2020 when it is scheduled to be completed.
2018 – Department receives “accreditation with commendation” from Accreditation Canada. First hiring for the new station begins – 10 recruits
