I'm on Vancouver Island. Qualicum Beach to be specific and used to be on the Dept., but now I just fight fires with the BC Forest Service in the summer.

nice to meet you all, I'm planning on trying for the forest fire fighting this year. It'll be a good experience that's for sure.

I don't think I've seen much of qualicum beach, that's past nanose right?

Coombs/Hillers FD? Hmm..I think I saw them on the way to port alberni once.

Qualicum Beach is just after Parksville, which is just after Nanoose. And if you're planning on applying for fire fighting with the BC Forest Service applications are due January 31st, but you must also be 19 years old. If you're younger than that, then there's Wall Forestry in Duncan that Contracts out fire crews.

Was with Malahat FD for 7-8 years, just moved to Sooke after living for a year in Victoria (up the road from VFD station 3, I swear they liked hitting the siren in front of my old place to rub it in!)

There is lots of "islanders" kicking around the forums, and even a few from the Island's Islands (AKA, the gulf islands)

I know the applications are due soon, and I heard about the Wall's forestry group in duncan. I wasn't aware though that being 19 was a requirement considering the age to take the s-100 through the school was 16. Good thing I'm 19 now haha.

I am in Nanaimo, but not with Nanaimo Fire Rescue. There are a couple from Parksville on this site.
