President's Message

Fire Ops 101 is a premiere event that provides elected officials and other decision makers at every level an inside look at what it means to be a fire fighter. From donning the heavy protective gear, advancing hose lines into a burning building, cutting patients out of a vehicle to performing life saving CPR, spending the day side by side with frontline fire fighters will provide a glimpse into what a day is like in protecting our communities. Responding to all types of hazards and emergency calls, fire fighters are called upon to make decisions that affect the lives of others and having the necessary resources to carry out safely is paramount. Working with our elected officials and decision makers is vitally important to ensure that they understand the needs of keeping the public safe.

On behalf of the BCPFFA, thanks to Local 18, Vancouver Fire & Rescue Chief Darrell Reid and the Training Division for providing the facility and resources.
