Mandatory information session for potential firefighter recruits Feb. 24

The City of Colwood is looking for a few good volunteers to join the ranks at their fire department.

If you are 19 or older and a resident of Colwood, you are invited to an information session on Feb. 24 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Colwood Fire Station, 3215 Metchosin Rd.

This is a mandatory information session for anyone wishing to go through the recruitment process and an RSVP is required.

To confirm your attendance, contact Joanne Topping, emergency services support co-ordinator, at 250-478-8321 or email jtopping@colwood.ca.

Spouses and partners are welcome to attend, but not children.

Application forms will be available at the information session or can be picked up anytime at the hall. Forms don’t need to be submitted prior to the session.

The City of Colwood is served by approximately 40 firefighters, eight of which are career firefighters and roughly 32 make up the volunteer roster. All are trained and certified under the British Columbia Firefighters training program.
