2 Days till Youth Camp 2018

Every two years (since 2000) Comox Fire Rescue has hosted a 4 day Firefighter Youth Camp for approximately 36 Comox Valley high school students. The camp is open to both males and female students in grades 11 and 12. Applications and selections are done by the Work Experience staff in the high schools. The camps are offered every other year on even years. The goal of this camp is to provide significant learning and life experience and provide skills and attitudes that can be applied now and later in life.

The countdown is on! Here are some photos from the 2016 camp:

A sunny Friday in Comox

What a beautiful day to get Ladder 35 out for some Friday morning training! Evolutions involved rescues from a 3rd storey window and 5th storey balcony using a spine board and basket. Meanwhile, Rescue 38 completed searches in our smoke filled START building. 

Goodbye and good luck, Adam Auld!

Today we wave goodbye to Adam Auld, our most recent work experience firefighter. Adam joined us in November of last year in order to gain experience on calls and training. He hopes to be hired as a career firefighter. During his 4 months at CFR, Adam responded to 150 incidents and attended countless training and volunteer events. Adam, we wish you the best of luck in all your future endeavours!

Here are some highlights from Adam's time with us:
