Volunteer & Composite Fire Department Training & Equipment

Applications are not currently being accepted for this program.

Applications to the 2019 program are now being processed. If you submitted an application and have not received an acknowledgement from us, please contact the Program Officer directly at 250-356-0930. 

The intent of this funding stream is to build the resiliency of volunteer and composite fire departments through the purchase of new or replacement equipment, and to facilitate the delivery of training and exercises.  Ongoing operational costs and the purchase of fire apparatus are not eligible.

Volunteer fire departments are those that have no paid staff, except paid on-call volunteers.

Composite fire departments are those that have a mix of paid staff and unpaid volunteers.

Eligible applicants are all local governments (municipalities and regional districts), First Nations (bands and Treaty First Nations), legally incorporated society-run fire departments that are in good standing, and improvement districts in BC.

2019 Program
