Fire Protection Services

The TNRD has 16 Fire Service Areas. Nine of these areas are serviced through TNRD owned and operated fire departments, and seven of these areas are contracted to member municipalities.

The goal of TNRD Fire Protection Services is to protect lives, property and the environment through preparedness, prevention, public education and emergency response, with an emphasis on quality services, efficiency, effectiveness and safety.

TNRD Fire Departments

The TNRD administers nine rural fire departments, which provide structural fire protection in a number of rural areas of the regional district. Additionally, two TNRD Fire Departments in the North Thompson provide Road Rescue Service within their response boundaries (Blackpool Fire Rescue and Vavenby Fire Department).
