"100 Mile House Fire-Rescue History
The Early Years
100 Mile House Fire-Rescue began as an unofficial brigade in 1954, after fire engulfed the Bridge Creek Estate Garage and 100 Mile's first movie house burned the previous year. In 1956, the official volunteer fire department was formed with Ross Marks as 100 Mile's first fire chief.

Fundraising
Throughout the years, garage sales, dances and other events have been held by department and ladies' auxiliary members to raise money for fire service necessities. In 1979, members raised $10,000.00 in only a few months toward the purchase of the Jaws of Life; and many vehicles, such as Rescue 11, have been purchased with dollars raised by the department.

The Department Today
Over the past few years, we have seen a steady increase in the number of annual calls. With this increase, the average paid-on-call member spends approximately five hours per week completing fire department duties such as weekly training and responding to emergencies. 100 Mile House Fire-Rescue has evolved from not only fire suppression, but now includes rescue services, medical aid, and public education and awareness programs. The department also has its own training facility that we utilize on our weekly training nights. The continuing commitment and dedication of our past, present, and future members enables 100 Mile House Fire-Rescue to provide the community with a high level of service." Source: 100 Mile Fire
