The Town of Creston invites you to join the Community Fire Hall Advisory Committee (NOW CLOSED)

snipCouncil invites interested and enthusiastic residents or property owners from the Town of Creston, or a Town of Creston Fire Protection Contract Area, to serve on its new Community Fire Hall Advisory Committee (AC). The AC will explore Fire Hall options that will meet community needs, and those of our fire fighters, now and for years to come. 

While the recent borrowing referendum was unsuccessful, the Town of Creston is still required to provide a Fire Hall that meets legislative requirements (e.g., BC Building Code), health and safety regulations (e.g., WorkSafe BC), industry guidelines (e.g., National Fire Protection Association), and other criteria.

Working with technical experts and an appointed facilitator, the AC will help us explore workable solutions that address our Fire Hall challenges, then make recommendations to Council for short and long-term solutions.

It’s anticipated that the AC will include approximately 9 to 11 members, and will meet once every two weeks over the next six or more months. Members will be chosen based on criteria outlined in the Community Fire Hall Advisory Committee Terms of Reference, and will represent varied stakeholder and community interests. Interested individuals or organizations are invited to review the Terms of Reference, and submit the application form by Feb. 2, 2018. (NOW CLOSED)

Applications will be reviewed, with Council finalizing Advisory Committee membership on February 13, 2018. Edit: Due to delay in receiving confirmation from all members, this date has been changed to February 27th, 2018.

Thank you for your interest in making our community safe!

Copies of all applications will be made available to Creston Town Council and staff, for the sole purpose of making appointments to the committee. Your information is being collected in accordance with section 26 of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.
