Back to Who We Are


Colin Hanes joined Comox Fire Rescue in 2012 after he tried to drop off a Christmas Tree to be chipped. He was toured around the station, given an application form, and brought on 2 weeks later! Since then it's been non-stop training, learning, and giving back to the community. Outside of CFR, Colin is a Realtor with RE/MAX and enjoys snowboarding, hiking, squash, ultimate frisbee, and spending time with his wife and twin girls.
