The goal of Sun Peaks Fire and Rescue is to minimize the loss of life and property by helping people learn fire prevention and life safety skills. Our department utilizes a combination of career and volunteer staff to carryout a variety of educational programs, some of which are described below.

These involve working with the owners and managers of commercial structures to ensure that the public buildings they represent provide the highest level of life safety for the staff and visitors who use them.
