The District of Logan Lake recognizes its obligation under the British Columbia Web Accessibility 2024 Initiative and other disability laws to provide equal access to information found on the web. Our website has been carefully developed to allow access to our entire website where possible for users with special needs. Some of these include but are not limited to; how colour is used throughout our website for those who may have visual impairment, the size of the font, scalability of the design, and accessible content (live text versus image based text) which also includes alternative text fields for screen readers to understand imagery on the page and so much more.

We believe in a pro-active approach and will continue to improve and make efforts to ensure our site is as accessible as it can be. This approach ensures a positive user experience while accessing information from our website by structuring our page layout and navigational architecture into easy to understand pairings.

BC Guidelines on Accessibility expands beyond the web and it’s 2024 initiative is to make British Columbia the most accessible province in Canada which will affect the environment we live in and how we utilize and access the digital world. The BC government will follow the W3C WCAG 2.0 Standards on AA accessibility and is committed to meeting these standards. Accessibility 2024 is a ten year action plan to help move the province forward to providing easier access to information and services provided on the web.

Message from the Fire  Chief

On behalf of the Logan Lake Fire/Rescue I would like to welcome you to our website. Our desire is to provide our citizens and visitors with information that is useful and beneficial to you, our customers.

I am honoured to serve the District of Logan Lake as your Fire Rescue Chief. I am proud to lead our team of passionate, dedicated firefighting personnel. Our committed and skilled firefighters are here to help you during your time of need. Whether it is a medical emergency, fire, motor vehicle accident or any form of rescue we will strive to perform professionally and competently to exceed the public’s expectations. Simply stated our personnel care deeply about their duty to serve. It is also a privilege to work with the citizens of Logan Lake and to contribute to their overall safety. It is my commitment to always place the safety of our firefighters and citizens first. Our Fire Rescue services have identified programs that we are committed to on a regular base.

  1. Public Fire Safety and Education
  2. Emergency Response
  3. Fire Prevention, Inspection and Code enforcement
  4. Wildfire Mitigation and Prevention

We hope this web site will assist you in becoming more aware of our efforts in these a programs and most importantly, the fire safety measures you can take to protect your family and property.

Remember, working smoke alarms save lives and are law. Be sure to test your smoke alarms often, and that your home has one on every level and outside sleeping areas. Your actions after the alarms sounds are as crucial. Please develop, and practice, a household Fire Escape Plan with all members of your family. The precious seconds a well-practiced plan will save can make all the difference.
