Boundary Bay Fire Hall, EOC and Training Facility
Apr 16, 2018
Delta has always prioritized Public Safety as a cornerstone of our community. In order to continue this reputation, Delta has broken ground on a new Boundary Bay Fire Hall, Emergency Operations Centre and Training Facility.
"Emergency preparedness in our region means that we need to give our first responders the best resources available," said Mayor Lois E. Jackson. "A new facility at Boundary Bay Airport provides our Emergency Services team with those resources and maintains our commitment to public safety."
This project will serve as a replacement for Fire Hall No. 4, which was decommissioned last year. The new building will house a modern fire hall, municipal fire training facility, and will also serve as Delta's Emergency Operations Centre, a necessity highlighted by the recent Burns Bog Fire of 2016, as well as Delta's ongoing earthquake preparedness.
“The new Fire Hall at Boundary Bay Airport is ideally located to provide coverage for the airport, a growing industrial base, and will also improve response times to Highways 99 and 91," said Delta Fire Chief Paul Scholfield. "Delta Fire and Emergency Services will have its first fully dedicated Emergency Operations Centre and Fire Training Centre which will strengthen emergency response capabilities.”
Projected to be completed in May 2019, this new facility will further Delta Fire’s longstanding reputation as a world-class first-responder.
