The mandate of the Hudson’s Hope Fire and Rescue Service is to protect life, property, and the environment through the provision of fire prevention/life safety education, emergency preparedness, fire suppression and rescue services to the citizens of, and visitors to, the District of Hudson’s Hope.
To accomplish this mandate the department operates from two stations within the District which house 2 engines, 1 pumper/tanker and a Rescue Engine. The department is comprised of a full-time Chief, 2 Deputy Chiefs, 3 Captains, 1 Safety Officer and 19 Fire Fighters for a total complement of 26 members.
The Hudson’s Hope Fire & Rescue Service also offers in conjunction with the Hudson’s Hope School the opportunity for Grade 11 and 12 students to gain fire service experience through the Junior Fire Fighter program. This program offers the opportunity to learn about local emergency response in a safe, controlled and educational environment.
The department is also involved in numerous charities and fund raising activities throughout the year, including facilitating the annual Halloween fireworks display to raise funds for Muscular Dystrophy Canada.
