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.
