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.

New Water Recovery System

We have just finished installing a custom built water recovery system that will save an estimated 1,000,000 litres of drinking water every year. It captures rainwater and water used during training and recirculates it through a 15,000 gallon holding tank to be reused over and over. Check out this video (done by fire fighter Brent Craven) for more information!
