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.

Over 600 students have attended our firefighter youth camp programs over the past 15 years.

Comox Fire Rescue manages two different Firefighter Youth Programs (Firefighter Youth Camp and Firefighter Youth Semester Program). Chief Schreiner states: “We are so pleased to have the opportunity to work closely with many of the great youths in our community. These programs require a huge commitment by our outstanding group of firefighters. Without their assistance this would not be possible. We are also very fortunate to have great community support from many local businesses.”

Firefighter Youth Semester Program

Following the school district semester schedule we also manage two semester programs each year for Comox Valley high school students. The semester based program is very similar to our camps except that they are stretched out over a school semester rather that delivered in five intense days like our camps. The goal of this camp is to provide significant learning and life experience and provide skills and attitudes that can be applied now and later in life.

2015 Schedule

All sessions are on Thursday evenings from 7-9 pm. You are expected to be in turnout gear and ready to go by 7pm. Please ensure that you make an effort to clear these dates of work and other responsibilities as attendance is obviously very important. Remember, your instructors are there on a voluntary basis for every session.
