North Westside Fire Rescue is always ready to answer the call to help their neighbours.
Members would like residents to join them at an open house, Tuesday, Jan.22, from 7 to 9 p.m. The doors to Station 101 in Killiney Beach (514 Udell Road) will be wide open for residents of all ages to stop by.
Meet the firefighters, learn more about what they do, the commitment and training involved, and check out the equipment. You can even try your hand at some firefighting skills.
This is a great opportunity for anyone who’s thinking about joining the paid-on-call department to get your questions answered. Application forms will be available during the open house.
Anyone interested in becoming a paid-on-call North Westside firefighter should call 250-545-1195 and leave their name, phone number and e-mail address. Potential recruits will be contacted.
Applications and recruitment information is also available for downloading and printing on the RDCO website www.regionaldistrict.com/firerecruit.
Training will be provided for successful applicants during the department’s regular evening or weekend sessions.
