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.

Crew Swap with Cumberland

Last Tuesday's practice was a unique opportunity for both Comox and Cumberland firefighters: A truck from each department was sent with a crew to visit the other department for a night of training outside of their usual comfort zone. Comox firefighters visited Cumberland to brush up on their auto extrication skills while a Cumberland crew came to Comox for START (Survival Training and Rescue Techniques) training. It was a great experience for everyone involved!
