Crofton Fire Hall: Looking for New Recruits
The Crofton Fire Hall is looking for six to eight more firefighters, ideally before 2018.
It takes one year to become a firefighter, including three months of training and nine months of probation.
Fire Chief, Ken Rukus says becoming a full-time firefighter requires candidates to take their 10-01 training (full-time firefighter training).
There isn’t a shortage of firefighters in Crofton, but the numbers can always be bolstered.
However, only physically fit people living in the Crofton Fire Hall response boundaries are eligible to apply.
People can apply at the Municipality of North Cowichan or at the various fire halls.
