The Port Alice Fire Department boasts a dedicated crew of roughly 12 volunteers who answer fire and medically-related calls at any time day or night. Volunteers are the life-blood of the department which are responsible for an area which includes residential, industrial and commercial buildings, as well as a large forested region.
Our highly-trained firefighters spend countless hours each year advancing their training. Our members are called out in the event of a medical emergency, working in conjunction with the BC Ambulance Service.
The department also strives to prevent fire and other life safety accidents through its public education and fire prevention initiatives. Taking an active role in the community, volunteers continue to educate local residents on the dangers of fire and other hazards, with the aim of eliminating preventable accidents.
