JOIN US FOR OUR OPEN HOUSE & WORLD CAFE CONVERSATIONS!
The Community Fire Hall Select Advisory Committee (ASC) has been systematically and thoroughly looking at options to help solve our collective community challenge: to establish a new Fire Hall for the Town of Creston.
The ASC is made up of dedicated community volunteers, technical experts and elected officials tasked with helping the Town identify, communicate and consult on potential options, recommendations and action items.
Please join us at one of two open houses, featuring a presentation on what we know to date, followed by small group discussion, in a world café-style format, about what we need to consider moving forward.

Update February 28th, 2018
The Town of Creston is pleased to announce the establishment of its Community Fire Hall Advisory Select Committee (ASC), whose mandate is to bring forward recommendations to Council for short and long-term solutions to address deficiencies of the existing Fire Hall.
View Media Release.
The Town of Creston invites you to join the Community Fire Hall Advisory Committee (NOW CLOSED)
Council 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.
