About Fire and Rescue Services
The District of North Vancouver Fire & Rescue Services (DNVFRS) is a mission-oriented emergency services agency focused on the safety and well-being of our community.
Our members provide caring and compassionate emergency, fire, and rescue services to citizens and visitors.
We deliver our services through an integrated approach that encompasses emergency response for fire, rescue, and life safety, as well as fire prevention and investigation.
Your DNVFRS at a glance
With over 130 firefighters, command, training, and support staff at five strategically located fire stations, we serve the District's 160 square kilometers of urban and wilderness land, and our 82,500 residents.
Part of a regional fire and emergency system
As a participating agency, the DNVFRS has agreed, along with our two North Shore partners, to eliminate jurisdictional borders for fire and rescue responses.
This system is a model within British Columbia and across Canada and provides a much higher level of service for citizens in the three participating municipalities.
