In 2012, the Vancouver City Council established the goal of addressing the future of fire, EMS and emergency preparedness facilities in the City. Learn more about the work being done since then to reach this goal.
The mission of the City of Vancouver’s Fire Marshal's Office is to protect life and property by preventing emergencies before they happen. This is done through education, enforcement of fire, building and life safety codes, investigation of fire causes and the application of adopted codes to construction projects.
