The City of Colwood is looking for a few good volunteers to join the ranks at their fire department.

If you are 19 or older and a resident of Colwood, you are invited to an information session on Feb. 24 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Colwood Fire Station, 3215 Metchosin Rd.

This is a mandatory information session for anyone wishing to go through the recruitment process and an RSVP is required.

To confirm your attendance, contact Joanne Topping, emergency services support co-ordinator, at 250-478-8321 or email jtopping@colwood.ca.
