A world class leader in building safe and healthy communities
Vancouver Fire Rescue Services is committed to the health and safety of our staff and the community, and will enhance awareness through education and involvement while providing world class fire and rescue services.
In addition to fire suppression, we provide pre-hospital care, vehicle rescue, marine response, hazardous materials response, technical rescue, and many other emergency services in Vancouver.
We work to create safe communities through public education for all ages, fire prevention and inspection services, and by working closely with partner agencies and community groups.
