The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) is excited to announce that the Merville Fire Protection Local Service Area received new accreditation for the delivery of a superior tanker truck shuttle service for Merville Fire Station.
This accreditation through the Fire Underwriters Surveyor of British Columbia demonstrates that Merville Fire Station is capable of delivering the minimum accepted fire flows to detached dwellings throughout the fire protection district within eight kilometers by road of the responding fire station and five kilometers by road of a recognized water supply point.
“This new accreditation and tanker shuttle service will provide increased life saving and structural protection,” explains Electoral Area C Director Edwin Grieve. “Residents within the Merville Fire Protection Service are encouraged to contact their home insurance provider for potential house insurance savings.”
