East Barriere Fire Danger

Fire Prohibitions

Welcome to the Barriere Fire Department

The Barriere Fire Department is serviced by a group of dedicated volunteers trained in structural and wildland fire suppression. We service approximately 2500 residents within the fire department boundary, attending to 60-100 fire calls  annually.

Along with fire suppression our volunteers preform residential and commercial fire inspections. We also work closely with British Columbia Ambulance Service, RCMP and Barriere Search and Rescue to prepare and execute emergency plans.

Our fire department works together with the residents of Barriere on community events that support the safety and welfare of the town.

Assistant Fire Chief

I joined the fire department to serve the people in my community. I quickly became involved in the leadership of the department and have enjoyed leading a great team of men and women. I work hard to ensure the fire department and the community move forward in a positive direction to be a fire smart community!

The reason I joined the Fire Department was because I enjoy helping other people and it was a good way to give back to the community as well. I enjoy the challenges it gives and the experiences I acquire every call and practice.
