Could you provide a brief background of your fire service career?

I joined the Comox Fire Rescue in June 2018 because I wanted to be a bigger part of my community and to be able to play a role of helping those in their time of need. 

What is your favourite part of volunteering for Comox Fire Rescue?

Being a part of an association where everyone wants to see you succeed has been such a rewarding journey.


Outside of the fire department, what are your interests/hobbies?

Outside if the fire hall I can be found watching my son play hockey and lacrosse or playing baseball with my slow pitch team. Last winter I took up snowboarding and am now hooked I can't wait for the 2018/19 season to begin. In the summers enjoy days at the beach playing on the water or spending weekends camping.  


What are some major changes you have seen in the fire service industry during your career?

I haven't been with the fire service long enough to see major changes however I'm impressed with the ever evolving technology. 

Chief Schreiner states, "Sacha has been a great addition to our team. Her energy and commitment to training is great. Keep up the great work Sacha"
