Becoming a KVFD Firefighter

Training & Practice

We practice every Tuesday evening &, in addition, spend several weekends a year participating in intensive training sessions. Topics covered include safety and emergency management, vehicle operation, fire behavior, building construction, fire control, hose & nozzle use, ropes & knots, search & rescue, motor vehicle accident response, ladders, ventilation, water supply, salvage & overhaul, fire cause investigation, communications, fire prevention and public education. Firefighters are expected to be competent in operating tools and equipment while performing a variety of tasks specific to each general topic. Our training motto is simple... "Everyone has to know how to do everything."

We welcome new recruits. Application packages can be picked up at the Village of Keremeos office (499 2711) or the fire hall (499 2200)
