The Town of Millet is a 9-1-1 Community.

Millet Volunteer Fire Department operates with an active 25-person crew, as well as several reserve members, responding to over 100 emergency calls each year in a territory that includes portions of the County of Wetaskiwin and Leduc County, as well as the Town of Millet.  The majority of the department's call volume is Motor Vehicle Collisions (MVCs), as the department's territory covers a 20+ km span of the QEII Highway and Highway 2A. Firefighters in Millet are on call 24/7/365 to serve the community and surrounding areas.
