The Society plays a lead role in coordinating volunteer fire fighting, rescue services and emergency preparedness on Saturna Island.

SIFPS coordinates emergency medical services and fire protection services on Saturna Island by supporting a dedicated group of Emergency Medical Technicians and Volunteer Firefighters in their work. We do this as an Incorporated Society representing on behalf the residents and property owners of Saturna Island.

With 45% of the Island under the management of the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve, we also work closely with the National Park in wildfire management, and on a regional level with the Provincial Emergency Preparedness Program. Saturna’s Emergency Services Building #1 houses Parks Canada Wildfire fighting equipment as well as emergency preparedness infrastructure such as the building’s radio communications facilities.
