The fire departments in Courtenay, Comox, Fanny Bay and Oyster River will soon be taking part in training with BC Wildfire.

The exercise will take place on May 7 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Williams Beach and Coleman Road areas.

The main goal of the training is to prepare for a joint response to wildfires.

If you have questions about the exercise, you can contact Oyster River Fire Rescue at 250-337-8121.

“This type of training is crucial to ensure we are ready to respond to any wildfire locally or provincially if needed,” said Oyster River deputy fire chief Martyn Thomas.
