Drivers caught in deadly pileup billed for firefighter response

Michele Demyen says she received a bill of $930 because her vehicle was involved in the collision, even though she didn’t require firefighter assistance.

“I was quite surprised that the government is asking the public to pay for what has always been seen as a public service,” she told CTV Edmonton.

Municipal fire departments in Alberta are able to bill the province for costs related to collisions on provincial highways. The government’s insurance company can then turn to drivers involved in the collision to recoup the money, although experts say this is typically done through insurance companies rather than by sending bills directly to drivers.
