Pender Island Fire Protection Society
Pender Island Fire Rescue (PIFR) is a volunteer Fire and Rescue Department on Pender Island.
Building a state of the art Fire Training Facility. Off island training has its own challenges and costs including financial, community and personal costs. The Live Fire Training Facility allows capacity building in community including neighbouring Southern Gulf Islands, but without as high of a cost.
When you rely on volunteers as opposed to career personal, you must provide for ample training opportunity so that once in the field the volunteers know what to do, are kept safe and can help those in trouble safely.
Conconi Challenge was a unique campaign designed with the intention of involving local residents and property owners on Pender Island as well as the neighbouring Southern Gulf Island. The result was an incredible community activation.
