Fire Protection/First Responders

Hornby Island Fire Rescue is located on Hornby Island, on the west coast of British Columbia. We are a volunteer department staffed with 22 members, led by Chief Doug Chinnery.

We have a four-bay fire-hall housing our four front line apparatus:

  • 2004 American Lefrance pumper with 1,000 GPM pump and 1,050 gallon storage.
  • 1996 Superior tanker with a 1,500 gallon capacity
  • 2000 Crestline ambulance
  • 1982 King/Seagrave rescue truck containing our forestry, high angle rescue, and auto extrication gear.

This info is from the fire department website. Go there for for up-to-date information about Hornby’s fire protection and emergency services. You can follow posts about our volunteers and their activities and even keep track of the call-outs!
