Fire Hall Tours

We offer free guided tours of the Fire Hall to youth organizations such as Scouts, Girl Guides, and schools (K-7) located in the City. Get up close to the trucks, check out our special lifesaving equipment and protective clothing, and learn fire prevention tips from our team. For more information or to book a Fire Hall tour, call 604-980-5021 or email fire@cnv.org, with a suggested date and time frame, and we'll do our best to accommodate your request.

Community Events

The Fire Hall is part of the community and we love to get out and about and be involved in community events and parades. If your organization would like a fire truck to visit your event or you'd like to partner with the Fire Hall in a fundraising initiative, please get in touch, call 604-980-5021, or email fire@cnv.org.

Hot Summer Nights

During the heat of summer, Hot Summer Nights provide kids (and their parents) with a welcome cool-down. The Fire Department sets-up at a local park with a ladder truck and an engine to spray water for the kids to play in. Firefighters are on hand to answer questions and to provide tours of the trucks. Check back for dates/locations in summer of 2016. See the City's Signature Events.

Public Education Services

We offer a number of public education services through our Fire Prevention Office including:

'Remembering When' Program

Remembering When is a program developed by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). The program provides tools to help bring like-minded community organizations together with the opportunity of reaching those who are isolated and at the greatest risk for fire or fall related injuries. The overall goal of the Remembering When Program is to help seniors live safely at home as long as possible.

Smoke Alarm Installation Program

We offer a smoke alarm installation and battery changing program for seniors and people with disabilities. On request, the Fire Department is pleased to provide and install smoke alarms and batteries, free of charge, to those who are unable to perform this essential task themselves. This service aims to make everyone aware of the importance of a functioning early warning device in every home.

Medical Information Form

The Fire Department operates a self-reporting program for those who require additional help when faced with an emergency. Any person requiring assistance vacating a building in an emergency due to a medical condition or disability can complete and submit the Medical Information Form to the City Fire Department.

This self-reporting form is highly confidential and is kept on the City's Fire Department's database for a period of one year. A request for the information to be retained on the database for another year can be made two weeks prior to the expiry of the original submission.

For more information on any of our community service programs can contact the Fire Department at 604-980-5021 or fire@cnv.org.
