Get in the game
"The fire and rescue service is one of the most diverse and challenging professions known today. It is this diversity that inspires men and women to enter the service as volunteers, paid on-call volunteer firefighters, or career employees. Imagine having to train to prepare yourself to cope with situations that range from structure fires to motor vehicle accidents to hazardous chemical spills to heart attacks and almost any other possible emergency situation in between."
Our service is one which calls on its members to perform hot, sweaty, dirty, strenuous work, often in uncertain and hazardous environments.
The personal rewards and satisfaction gained from the fire and rescue service are often beyond description. There is a sense of accomplishment after controlling a building fire, joy and elation when a person is rescued, compassion for accident victims and fulfillment in teaching fire safety. The list goes on and on.
The bottom line in our business is measured by the loss of life, pain and suffering, and property damage we have prevented and reduced. We exist and are prepared for one reason only: to provide service to the community. "A fire department exists not for what it does; it exists for what it may have to do".
A message from Mayne Island Fire Rescue
The Mayne Island Fire Department is staffed by men and women who protect our community as paid on-call firefighters.
These individuals protect approximately 1200 people day and night during fall and winter seasons and as many as 4000 people during the busy summers. Protecting over 1600 properties located within 27 square kilometres, our firefighters respond to over 120 calls each year for house fires, brush fires, emergency medical first aid, vehicle accidents, rescues, and many other smaller emergencies, including public assistance requests.
When a fire department responds to fires and other larger emergencies, it requires many trained personnel to effectively protect our community and its visitors.
Mayne Island Fire Rescue is always looking for more members to join our team. Come on down to the fire hall and talk with Kyle or Eric about the many benifits of being a paid on-call member of the department.
