September 11, 2020

In 2019, the Saanich Fire Department celebrated its centennial. This exhibit was produced through a collaboration between Saanich Archives and the Saanich Fire Department in honour of this milestone. The exhibit was displayed during the centennial year at the Fire Hall and at the Saanich Centennial Library.

Started in 1919 with one fireman and one truck, the Saanich Fire Department now employs over 120 uniformed members and 7 support staff. This exhibit commemorates 100 years of providing the highest quality service to our community.
