Meet our Members - Caroline Taylor

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

I joined the Comox Fire Rescue in June 2018. I will be releasing from the military soon, and I was looking for a new challenge in my life. Each day and training is teaching me new skills.


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

I like the team spirit that is here at Comox Fire Rescue and I want to serve my community more.

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

I enjoy running, Crossfit, back country hiking and cooking ~ just to name a few of my hobbies.


If you could change one thing about the fire service, what would it be?

I haven't been with the fire service long enough to comment on changes, but I wish I lived closer to the hall :)

Chief Schreiner states, "Thanks so much for joining and being a part of our team Caroline. It’s members like you that make our department better and our community safer. Keep up the hard work.”
