Lions Bay Fire Rescue (LBFR) is committed to protecting life, property and the environment. The department consists of 25 paid on call firefighters, 3 fire apparatus, 1 station and 1 training facility. They serve the town's approximate 500 homes and 1,500 citizens. The department responds to a variety of emergency incidents including medical, fire, technical rescue, forest interface, motor vehicle accidents, and public service. LBFR works to ensure the safety of all who work, live and travel through our community.
LBFR not only serves the Village of Lions Bay and its residents but also responds to incidents along the Sea to Sky Highway (HWY 99). The 26-kilometer stretch of highway from West Vancouver to Britannia Beach generates approximately 75% of our call volume.

LBFR prides itself with highest level of training provided to its members, we continue to train in areas such as advanced auto extrication, forestry firefighting, first responder medical training, technical rope rescue, fire ground operations, and officer development.
