Local fire safety house officially renovated by firefighters

The oldest and most well-known ‘tiny home’ in the Valley has been renovated.

The Comox Valley Fire Safety house has been around since 1988, helping educate kids about fire safety every October for Fire Safety Month.

In order to help the house continue its education role, members of the Courtenay fire department spent the last four months upgrading it.

The upgrades cost $3500, and include new siding, roofing, and interior features.

Lieutenant of the fire department Ian Robertson says using this tool helps immerse the children in learning about fire safety.

“Instead of merely listening to a presentation the kids can apply their new skills in a safe environment,” said Robertson. “We can also meet kids where they are, taking out the barrier of getting the fire hall to receive training allows us to maximize the learning and ensures no kids are missed.”

The city hopes the upgrades will allow the house to continue its education role for years to come.
