PHOTOS: Colwood fire department opens its doors to the community

Colwood Fire Rescue held an open house on Sunday (Sept. 25)

Colwood Fire Rescue’s annual open house event was back in action this past weekend at 3215 Metchosin Rd.

Crowds poured in to explore the station, the fire trucks and the museum, watch demonstrations of car extrication and firefighters compete in time trials as well as learn more about firefighting through various activities.

Kids got to try out fire hoses, fire extinguishers and wearing the gear themselves.

There were also hot dogs and refreshments on offer from Seafirst Insurance Brokers with the donation proceeds going to the Colwood Volunteer Firefighters’ Association’s community initiatives fund.
