Tumbler Ridge Fire Protection

Fire Protection

Our community is safeguarded by group of 14 volunteers who dedicate their time to become trained and to support events in the community. These men and women go through rigorous training to be effective assistance in the event of a brush fire, structural fire, motor vehicle incident or the handling of hazardous materials. The team is extensively equipped with modern equipment that undergoes weekly inspection, and each member has minimum training requirements that must be met in order to become qualified.

Tumbler Ridge RCMP


The community of Tumbler Ridge is protected by a local detachment of Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Since the origin of the town, a concept of crime prevention by environmental design (CPTED) has been in place to control crime. The success of this program has been vast enough that Canada uses our community as a model for other communities to prevent crime.
