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.

Back to Who We Are


Pascal Lafreniere joined Comox Fire Rescue in 2009. He was promoted to Lieutenant in 2014 and again to Captain in 2016 - he is now training each years' newest recruit class. Outside of CFR he works at the Comox Recreation Centre. He enjoys spending time outdoors - usually doing activities such as mountain biking, snowboarding (when there's actually snow on Mt. Washington), and quadding in the back-country.
