We Sold a Truck!

After a great deal of consideration, it was decided that we should sell our Compressed-Air Foam system Truck to a department that could get more use out of it than we have. We put it up to the district and after approvals and due process, we have accepted an offer and officially sold this truck to the CVRD for the Honeymoon Bay Fire Department. We can officially retire MBFD CAFS 77.Read More →

Coastal Fire Centre to rescind open burn prohibitions

PARKSVILLE – Effective at noon on Friday, Sept. 29, 2017, all open fires will once again be permitted** throughout the Coastal Fire Centre’s jurisdiction, since recent rainfall and cooler temperatures have reduced wildfire risks in the region. Category 2 open fires and Category 3 open fires will be permitted, as well as the use of tiki torches, burn barrels, fireworks, sky lanterns and binary exploding targets. The campfire ban that was in place in the Coastal Fire Centre this summer was lifted on Sept. 18, 2017. Local governments may still have their own burning restrictions in place, so people should always check with local authorities before lighting any fire of any size. AnyoneRead More →

Busy training weekend. We have firefighters in a forcible entry course and a group doing EVO (Emergency Vehicle Operation) in Cobble Hill. Well they need to be fed and here is a wonderful story.
The EVO group went to the Cobblestone Inn for lunch. When they went to leave, some kind hearted person paid their bill.
THANK YOU TO THE PERSON OR PEOPLE WHO DID THAT!
Please do not think you have to do things like that, however, we do appreciate it.
