HOW CAN I BECOME A VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTER? "Have you ever thought - If I don't volunteer, who will?" Volunteer firefighter applications are available online, at Fire Station #1, 2225 Otter Point Road, or by contacting Assistant Chief Matt Barney, Training Officer at 250-642-5422. Volunteer firefighter applications are accepted year round. Training sessions for new recruit firefighters commonly begin each September at Fire Station #1. When basic training is completed, successful applicants will be issued a pager and can begin attending emergency calls.
