The Sooke Fire Department boasts a dedicated crew of 50 volunteers and two paid staff who answer fire and medically-related calls at any time day or night. Volunteers are the life-blood of the department which is responsible for a 64-square km area which includes residential, industrial and commercial buildings, as well as a large forested area.
Our highly-trained firefighters spend thousands of hours each year advancing their training, with many members specializing in a variety of fields including automobile rescues, rope rescues and much more. Our members are called out in the event of a medical emergency, working in conjunction with the BC Ambulance Service. About half the department's annual call volume can be attributed to medical assistance calls.
The department also strives to prevent fire and other life safety accidents through its public education and fire prevention initiatives. Taking an active role in the community, volunteers continue to educate local residents on the dangers of fire and other hazards, with the aim of eliminating preventable accidents.
