Fire & Rescue
West Vancouver Fire & Rescue will be holding a virtual FireSmart workshop on Thursday, July 29 from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
All West Vancouver residents are encouraged to register, especially those living in the Wildfire Hazard Development Permit Area, which includes all properties within 100 metres of a forested area—approximately 50% of land in the District.
What we do
West Vancouver Fire & Rescue does much more than putting out fires. We work to prevent or minimize the impacts of emergency incidents by:
- delivering prompt and effective response to fire, rescue, and medical emergencies
- protecting life, property, and the environment
- providing fire prevention services
- holding public education events
- enforcing regulations, including the Fire Code and municipal bylaws
