History of Williams Lake Fire Department
The Williams Lake Fire Department (WLFD) was formed in 1929 and incorporated in 1930. The first motorized pumper was acquired in 1947 and is now housed in the building outside the old fire hall (now Arts & Culture building); it is a 1947 Chevrolet Maple Leaf. The WLFD is dispatched through a pager system originating from Prince George Fire Dispatch-911 Emergency.
Free tours of the Fire Hall are available by appointment. Please book at least 1 week ahead, ask for Rob Warnock when setting up your visit.
