Comox Fire Rescue

Prevention, Emergency Response, and the Comox Fire Training Centre

Comox Fire Rescue provides a variety of preventive and emergency services to a population of over 18,000 in an area of 16 square miles. This includes the Town of Comox, the Comox Fire Protection Improvement District, the Bates Huband Local Service Area (Regional District of Comox-Strathcona), and the Comox Indian Band. They also operate the Comox Fire Training Centre, which trains firefighters from all over Vancouver Island, and even parts of BC and the rest of Canada. The training centre is certified by the JIBC.

Lieutenant Cole Logan decided he wanted to be a fire fighter after experiencing the Backdraft ride at Universal Studios at the age of 8. In 2005, he joined Comox Fire Rescue. Having completed his Fire Officer 2 (and working on 3), he is currently a training officer for new recruits on Black Platoon. He is also a Live Fire, S.T.A.R.T., and HazMat instructor and is trained to the HazMat Technician level. He was fortunate enough to be picked to be a part of the fire crew that worked at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Whistler, BC.

Outside of the fire department, Cole is an avid outdoorsman with a gift for catching fish.
