CORE VALUES


MESSAGE FFire Chief Nick DelmonicoROM THE FIRE CHIEF

The primary goal of the Port Coquitlam Fire & Emergency Services Department is to protect the lives and property of the citizens of Port Coquitlam, as well as the environment we live in from the adverse effects of fires, medical emergencies or exposures to dangerous conditions created by man or nature. The 65 member contingent serves the City population of approximately 60,000 to ensure the safety of all who work, live in, and visit the City of Port Coquitlam.

Port Coquitlam is a growing community that combines residential density spread across ten square miles that includes light commercial, light industry, heavy industry, transportation corridors, and rural properties situated in both centralized and remote areas of the community. The Department continues to evolve and expand to ensure the best possible service to our citizens and has eagerly adopted advancements in equipment, training, and technology.

The concept of the fire service now includes much more than structural firefighting.  The general categories of emergency response for the Department are; Fire Suppression, Medical Aid Response, Special Operations Response (hazardous materials, rope rescue, confined space rescue), Fire Prevention, By-Law Enforcement, Public Education, as well as the primary duties of managing Emergency Preparedness for the City. Whatever the size or complexity of the incident, the Port Coquitlam Firefighters are trained and equipped to respond and serve our community.

Port Coquitlam Fire & Emergency Services has a strong sense of the community it serves and has always faced its challenges boldly and responded quickly to changes in the fire service to ensure the best possible service to our citizens. We strive to bring a strong sense of community values to everything we do especially through the numerous volunteer activities we organize or attend on behalf of our City and its citizens.

New pages to the story are being written every day by the actions of the dedicated and professional staff that comprise what we believe is one of the finest departments in British Columbia.

-Fire Chief Nick Delmonico
