Our Mission

To work as a team serving the city of Pitt Meadows by protecting life, property and the environment from fire and other risks.

 

Pitt Meadows Fire & Rescue Services Website 
 

The City of Pitt Meadows Fire Rescue Service hosts its own website to ensure training priorities including testing are updated and kept in a private setting for volunteer firefighters.  We also provide information related to emergency preparedness, upcoming events, current stats, history of the department, photo gallery of recent fires and events, apparatus and department profiles, and several other interesting fire related topics.  Please visit our site at pittmeadowsfire.com.

On January 12, 2016, Council received a report from Dugal Smith & Associates, who provided a review of fire and rescue services in Pitt Meadows. The report is available here.

High Risk Smoke Alarm Campaign

The City of Pitt Meadows Fire & Rescue Service, in cooperation with the Fire Chiefs' Association of BC and the Province of British Columbia, is offering a program whereby seniors and people living with disabilities can request a free smoke alarm for their household and/or assistance with testing any existing smoke alarms in the home.

Research has shown that the elderly, disabled, and other at-risk populations face the highest risk of dying in a residential fire. It is recommended that one smoke alarm be installed on every level of a home. Through this program, the intent is to allow individuals at higher risk to continue to live independently and safely in their homes.

In order to request a visit from the Pitt Meadows Fire & Rescue Service and installation of a new smoke alarm, or testing of an existing one, download and fill out  the application form.  For more information on the program, visit the Pitt Meadows Fire & Rescue Service website.

For additional assistance or information please contact Pitt Meadows Fire Department at 604.465.2401 or via email at fire@pittmeadows.ca.
