Locations & Operations

West Vancouver Fire & Rescue has been serving the municipality for almost a century. With four fire stations and a fleet of seven trucks, the Fire & Rescue Services is committed to protecting life, property, and the environment.

Fire & Rescue Services is comprised of six functions: Administration, Emergency Response, Fire Prevention, Public Education, Mechanical and Training.

Fire & Rescue Services works jointly with both the City and District of North Vancouver fire departments to provide shared services across the North Shore with the goals of:

  • improving fire and rescue service levels to residents, businesses and industry
  • improving the safety of responders at mutual aid incidents
  • improving resource coordination between the three departments

Fire & Rescue also respond to medical calls, but they do so in support of BC Ambulance. BC Ambulance makes the determination whether to call on Fire & Rescue support or not.

West Vancouver Fire Service Museum & Archives

West Vancouver Fire & Rescue has been serving the municipality for almost a century. In that time, much has changed with the approach to firefighting. From new safety standards to improved technology, the history of firefighting can be very interesting.

The West Vancouver Fire Service Museum and Archives Society is dedicated to protecting and preserving antiquated and archival firefighting items—trucks, newspaper clippings, hoses, reports, uniforms—so that past West Vancouver firefighters are remembered for the bravery and commitment to public safety they exhibited in their jobs.
