Lasqueti Volunteer Fire Department

The Lasqueti Volunteer Fire Department (LVFD) is staffed by a dedicated crew of volunteers, including:

  • First Responders
  • Fire Fighters
  • Dispatchers
  • Coordinators and administrative assistants

Our Fire Chief, Richard C., capably oversees the whole operation for the qRD.

The community is so grateful to these dedicated volunteers who take annual training courses and are on-call 24/7 during their shifts.  You are an amazing group of people!

The annual Fire Fighters Picnic (typically in the first weekend of August) is the primary fund raiser for our volunteers, and one way we show our appreciation for all they do.
