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.
