There are six fire departments on the Sunshine Coast four of which fall under the umbrella of the Sunshine Coast Regional District.
Gibsons and District Volunteer Fire Department
Roberts Creek Volunteer Fire Department
Halfmoon Bay Volunteer Fire Department
- Egmont and District Volunteer Fire Department
The members of these fire departments are volunteers who give generously of their time and are committed to providing high quality, cost effective emergency services to the people who live, work and visit their communities.
They are on call 24/7 to respond when needed to fires, motor vehicle crashes and other rescue type incidents with the primary objective to protect life, property and the environment to the best of their ability.
Firefighters, as well as maintaining the operational readiness of all apparatus and equipment, attend a minimum of two hours per week in-house training and give up many weekends and additional evenings for scheduled training sessions both on and off the Sunshine Coast.
Not enough can be said about our firefighters, we are very proud of these dedicated men and women.
There are also two independent fire departments on the Sunshine Coast.
