Special Use Equipment:

Because of the diverse area that the Lake Country Fire Department serves, some special equipment is necessary:

  • An ATV 4×4 with an onboard 60 gallon water tank with class foam, along with a trailer for a basket stretcher is used for rescue of hikers in remote areas when helicopters cannot access, and for putting out small fires wither human caused or lighting strikes.
  • A fire safety mobile training center is a small presentation center with a seating area for video presentations, kitchen for safety presentations, typical bedroom with heated door and theatrical smoke generator, smoke alarm, back escape window with ladder. This is used as part of elementary school program.

All fire halls in Lake Country contain equipment best suited to the needs of the area and the responders all work together as one team.  The Lake Country Fire Department also provides assistance in other jurisdictions as part of a Mutual Aid Agreement between all stakeholders in the Central Okanagan.
