The Provincial Office of the Fire Commissioner has requested New Westminster’s assistance with the BC wildfires. We have currently deployed:
- One x Type 1 Engine to Kamloops with no personnel at this time.
- Two x Type 1 Engines to Williams Lake, one engine will be staffed with four NWFRS personnel. The other engine will be on standby.
We have opened our Department Operations Centre and will be monitoring changing conditions and will update Mayor & Council as needed. For further information please contact Chief Armstrong directly.
