Langford Fire Rescue has been the City of Langford’s primary fire and rescue organization since 1947.

Langford Fire Rescue is a composite department made up of both IAFF and paid-on-call members who care passionately about their community. Over 60-members strong, Langford Fire Rescue is a full-service department that provides a variety of services including fire fighting, motor vehicle incidents and technical rescue.

Langford Fire Rescue prides itself, not only in our responsibility to our community’s safety, but also the welfare of those within and beyond our city limits.

The members of Langford Fire Rescue are as caring as they are professional in their duties. Numerous groups benefit from Langford Fire Rescue fundraising drives. Through classic firefighter initiatives such as the Boot Drive for Muscular Dystrophy Canada, which has been the main beneficiary of Langford Fire Rescue’s fundraising efforts since the 1970s.  They also support the BC Burn Fund and Wounded Warriors, among other.

The City’s firefighting force has also been an aid leader on an international scale by initiating several programs to assist those in need across the globe. Canadians Sending Afghanistan Firefighting Equipment (CAN S.A.F.E.) collected donated surplus equipment from firefighting departments from across Canada and delivers it, with proper training, to under-equipped Afghan firefighters. Following the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Langford Fire provided support to an orphanage in desperate need of repairs.
