CVRD Fire Rescue needs new recruits

CVRD recruiting drive takes place this Saturday at Honeymoon Bay Fire Hall from 1-4 p.m. BBQ and light refreshments will be served.

Cowichan Valley Regional District kicks off their annual Fire Rescue volunteer recruitment drive at 1 p.m. on Saturday at Honeymoon Bay Fire Hall. This year, six volunteer departments are working together with the motto “Communities Helping Communities” to find more volunteer fire fighters. CVRD needs dedicated, keen volunteers who have the time and commitment to become well-trained and provide this essential service to their communities.

If you are interested in an excellent way to give back to your community and help those in need, the volunteer Fire Rescue service offers a great deal of rewards. Recruitment is open to men and women and some departments also have junior fire fighter programs for youth who are eager to get involved. Interested individuals are invited to attend Honeymoon Bay Hall for an open house.

This is your chance to ask questions, receive information and hear firsthand accounts of volunteer fire fighters from around the area. There will be a light BBQ and refreshments available.
