The District of Invermere is located in the Columbia Valley, between the Rocky and Purcell Mountain ranges, on a lake at the mouth of the Columbia River, in the Rocky Mountain Trench. Invermere is halfway between Radium Hot Springs and Fairmont Hot Springs, on the west side of Lake Windermere. The population is 3,400 full time residents, and has a very large part time resident population, summer and winter. Established in 1810, as a trading post, Invermere has become a popular vacation resort area. The many golf courses, great back country, outdoor activities, and the lake make the area a Mecca for vacationers.
Message from the Chief
I am pleased to welcome you to the Invermere Fire Rescue website; an innovative addition to our fire prevention efforts. While visiting our website you will find that it is designed to be child friendly, and to provide information on the services and projects of Invermere Fire Rescue.
Invermere Fire Rescue is a volunteer based, paid on call, fire service of 27 members that reflects the makeup of our community. This fire service is modern and progressive with the finest equipment available. Its most valuable asset is the quality of its members. Training is on-going in fire suppression, road rescue, over the bank, and confined space rescue.
While standing tall to face the challenges of the future, Invermere Fire Rescue was built on tradition and the values of our history.
The Invermere Fire Rescue Service is committed to providing the residents and visitors to the District of Invermere with the best fire service possible.
If you have any suggestions for improving this website, please drop us a line.
