The Cortes Island Volunteer Fire Department is actively recruiting new members!
Do you want to give back to your community?
Would you like to learn valuable new skills?
Do you want to be part of an amazing team & make life-long bonds?
No experience necessary, we provide the training.
Cortes Island Fire Rescue volunteers participate in all of the functions of the department. This includes responding to incidents, public events, and training. The volunteers receive training in all aspects of firefighting. Some training is on-island and some is off-island. The Comox Fire Training Centre gives courses such as Live Fire and Rapid Intervention Team. We do as much of the training as possible on island to minimize cost and disruption to the volunteer’s personal lives. Our regular drill night is Tuesday and practices run from 7 to 9pm.
We are looking for dedicated individuals to join the crew. Men and Women over 18 are welcome to join. There is a place for everyone! Because it is a volunteer service you are not expected to make every call or practice. The only requirement is that you participate where possible and have a desire to serve the community.
Join Cortes Island Fire Rescue!
