Team Deployed to Assist protecting Homes from Wildfires

July 14, 2017 – A combined team from Sooke, Metchosin and Langford Fire Departments were deployed last night to assist in protecting homes during the wildfires in BC. They arrived in 150 Mile House this afternoon and will work with Pitt Meadows, Abbotsford and Sicamous Fire Departments for any structure fires that may occur as the wildfires continue to sweep across the region. The team will be deployed for six days before being replaced with another combined team should the fires continue. The approach to send one to two members from each department ensures adequate resources remain in place at home as conditions on the south island are currently at high.
