Please bring at least two pieces of ID. One of them must have a signature. Between the two, they should prove your address, but if you do not have something with your current address you are allowed to make a formal declaration of residency. Picture identification is not necessary. Typical examples of ID that people use are driver's license, BCID, firearms license, CareCard, credit card, SIN, status card, bank card, etc. Even a utility bill will work as a secondary piece of ID.

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.
