Fire Protection

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.

For further information regarding fire protection services, contact the Manager of Protective Services by telephone at 250-392-3351 or toll free at 1-800-665-1636.
