Fire Protection

The Cariboo Regional District currently administers 14 volunteer fire departments throughout the region. They are:

Deka Lake Lac La Hache Wildwood Bouchie Lake
Lone Butte 150 Mile House Kersley Barlow Creek
Forest Grove Miocene West Fraser Ten Mile Lake
108 Mile Ranch     Interlakes

 

All volunteer fire departments operated by the Cariboo Regional District are recognized for insurance purposes by the Insurance Advisory Organization.

The Cariboo Regional District has established mutual aid agreements between fire departments, which encourages a cooperative approach to maximizing the level of service provided to our constituents. The agreements allow equipment and manpower from departments to assist neighbouring fire departments in the case of large fires or concurrent incidents.

Mutual aid agreements are also in place with the three municipal fire departments: the District of 100 Mile House, the City of Williams Lake, and the City of Quesnel, as well as with several independent and First Nations fire departments.
