Qualicum Beach Fire Rescue responds to over 300 calls per year. We respond to more than just house fires. Our dedicated team is trained to respond to a myriad of emergency incidents. We are a Full-Service Operations fire department with a long-standing tradition of providing efficient and effective essential services.


Incidents - Responding to Calls - Fire

We are trained to respond to all fires in the Qualicum Beach Fire Protection Area. If you live outside of a hydrant-supplied area, we are an accredited Superior Tender Shuttle service. This means that we can supply enough water with our tender trucks to mimic a hydrant-supplied water source during a fire.

  • Structure fires
  • Electrical fires
  • Vehicle fires
  • Wildfires


Incidents - Responding to Calls - MVI

As a department that provides fire and rescue services, we respond to motor vehicle incidents and are able to provide rescue and medical services to patients on scene.

  • Collisions
  • Extrication


Medical Calls

As a fire department, we assist British Columbia Emergency Health Services (BCEHS) with emergency medical care when needed.


Incidents - Responding to Calls - Alarms

We respond to reports of fire alarms when they are called in by alarm monitoring companies or people on scene.

If you hear a fire alarm going off in a building, call 911 and tell the operator the address. The building may have a local alarm that is not monitored – which means we will not automatically get called out.


Incidents - Responding to Calls - Technical Rescue

We have a team of certified rope rescue technicians who are able to respond to technical scenarios requiring special access considerations.

  • High-angle rescues
  • Low slope scenarios
  • Confined space incidents
