Hornby Island Fire Rescue is staffed by a group of dedicated volunteers. Each week the members have a regularly scheduled practice, where we work on our techniques and drills to keep our skill set current.
Calls for medical assistance, motor vehicle incidents and structure fires are responded to at all hours day and night, and members’ pagers are on twenty four hours a day seven days a week.
HIFR maintains a Volunteer Fund to pay for occasional events for the members, such as a Christmas party, summer barbecue and refreshing our furniture on occasion.
We are sometimes asked if we accept donations and the answer is a grateful yes! We have recently made it easier to accept donations, for which we are very appreciative. We accept cash, checks made out to HIFR Volunteer Fund, e-transfers to firstname.lastname@example.org, and PayPal.
To all our supporters we say Thank-you!!
