View the consultant’s final report, the Mount Washington Fire Protection Study - regarding the possible creation of a Mount Washington fire protection service - on the links page. The report was prepared by Sarah Morden of Defero-West Consulting and Sherry Hurst of Leftside Partners, Inc.
Update: December 11, 2015
The establishment of a new fire service for Mt. Washington will require elector assent, which means that the residents and property owners of Mt. Washington will have to give their permission way of a referendum to proceed with the project.
As the CVRD and the steering group continue to develop specific aspects of the proposed fire service, we commit to providing the residents and property owners of Mt Washington with all of the information required for them to make an informed choice whether or not to proceed with the project. This Information Handout [PDF - 152 KB] provides the latest information as developed by the consultants and the steering group. Please review this handout and if you have any questions or require further information, please email the CVRD at: firstname.lastname@example.org

CVRD staff has assembled a “steering group” that includes participation by the CVRD, Mount Washington ownership group, local strata representatives, residential property owners and other user groups to re-examine the opportunities for establishing a fire protection service. The 15 members of the steering group are providing input, advice and local perspective to the CVRD and the consultants regarding the development of a possible fire service.
