“So far, working with Comox Fire Rescue has been amazing and I feel extremely lucky and grateful for this opportunity. I can’t pick out one specific thing to call my favorite as I have enjoyed everything so far, even scrubbing toilets. I have been very impressed with how up to date (or ahead) Comox is in regards to their facilities, training, tools, procedures, technology, etc. The members here are even better. Their reputation certainly precedes them and they are no doubt one of the most forward thinking departments in Canada and I am glad to be a part of it.”
