Suppression

The White Rock Fire Rescue Service is responsible for the prevention and suppression of fires; the mitigation of the effects of dangerous goods incidents; assisting in the rescue of people from potentially dangerous situations; and assisting with medical emergencies.

Career firefighters are assisted by auxiliary firefighters who are paged when required. The Fire Hall is staffed with both career and auxiliary firefighters.

Career firefighters operate out of Fire Hall 1, responding with two Engines, a Tower and Mocom. The career staffing at Fire Hall 1 enables the Fire Rescue Service to provide 24-hour year-round emergency response capabilities for fires, rescues and other emergencies.

White Rock Fire Rescue Service is dispatched by the Surrey Fire Dispatch Centre, which receives calls from the 911 Operators.

The Fire Rescue Service operates under the direction of the Fire Chief, who reports to the Mayor and Council through the City Manager.
