Operations


Suppression

The Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service is responsible for the prevention and suppression of fires; the mitigation of the effects of dangerous goods incidents; assisting in the rescue of people from potentially dangerous situations; and assisting with medical emergencies.

The Fire Rescue Service operates under the direction of the Fire Chief, who reports to the Mayor, and Council through the City Manager. The department is dispatched by the Fraser Valley Regional Fire Dispatch Centre, which receives calls from the 911 Operators.

The Department operates 8 Fire Halls. Career fire fighters are assisted by auxiliary fire fighters who are paged when required. Career fire fighters operate out of Fire Hall 1, Fire Hall 2, Fire Hall 6 and Fire Hall 8, with one engine each. Career staffing enables the Fire Rescue Service to provide 24-hour year-round emergency response capabilities for fires, rescues, and other emergencies.
