It takes more than the right shoe size to fill a pair of boots at Port Hardy Fire Rescue.
Do you have what it takes?
Port Hardy Fire Rescue was established in 1968, and since its establishment has relied on local men and women to answer the call, day or night, when an emergency happens.
Today, 50 years later, the equipment has changed, firefighting has evolved, and the training has improved, but the need for dedicated members remains the same.
With a volume of 175+ calls per year, two stations, and six apparatus, Port Hardy Fire Rescue is the busiest department on the North Island. New members are always needed to help maintain the fire protection needs of the area.
WILL YOU ANSWER THE CALL?
Come out to a practice night, 1900hrs @ Hall No. 1 every Thursday evening, to get more information, or call Fire Chief Brent Borg at 250-230-0341.
