Invermere Fire Rescue


The Invermere Fire Rescue Service was established in 1952 as a volunteer-based service to the District of Invermere in  British Columbia. Today it is modern and progressive, equipped with the finest equipment and vehicles possible.

Their mission is to provide the residents and visitors to the District of Invermere with the best fire service possible. Under the leadership of fire chief, Roger Ekman, the volunteers spend many hours each month, training in such skills as fire suppression, road rescue, over-the-bank rescue and confined space rescue so they are ready in every type of emergency. The department receives about 100 calls during the course of a year.

The Invermere Fire Rescue Service website is child-friendly and parents will find links to great websites geared to providing every child with information about how he or she and their families can prepare for the event of a fire, such as:

  • How to make an escape plan
  • The importance of checking smoke alarms regularly
  • Will your smoke alarm wake you up in the middle of the night?

For all emergencies requiring fire department, police or ambulance, call 911
