A fire hall would :
- Improve response time for Fire Departments to arrive on scene
- Improve the building code for houses constructed in East Courtenay
Reduce the cost of home insurance
I am very proud of the world class Fire Fighting Training Centre that was built in East Courtenay, and although a Fire Hall was planned for, other priorities such as flooding made it difficult to make it happen. This would be a project requiring significant investment public ascent. I would engage the public to ensure this is a project the community supports in principle and economically.
