Double Duty Fire Brigades

Mackenzie’s first fire hall, 1967

Mackenzie’s first fire hall was donated by BC Forest Products Ltd. The first fire truck was a La Frances pumper truck bought from the Saanich Fire Department.

In the beginning, Mackenzie had two Fire Brigades due to the road between the town and the mills being so bad. During the day the Ladies Brigade handled the calls, and at night the Mens Brigade took over.
