On April 25, 2012, Fire Chief Rob Girard presented the new First Responders Level 1 with their EMA Licenses after they successfully completed the program.

“I am very proud of all the new First Responders and the existing First Responders who were recently re-certified as First Responders Level 1,” said Girard. “Each individual gave up several weekends of intense bookwork, studying and practical’s in order to certified.”

The First Responder Program in Revelstoke is designed for initial emergency medical assistance to complement the BC Ambulance Service for public who are in need of medical life saving actions. The program helps to save lives and provides a valuable service to those who need it in the City of Revelstoke and Fire Protection Area of the CSRD.

This brings the total compliment of First Responders serving our community to 17.
