Tantalus Fire Hall

Tantalus Fire Hall (Fire Hall #2) is currently the District’s main fire hall. The Fire Department’s administration and career staff are located at this fire hall, as well as most of its key fire apparatus.

An architect's review in 2018 identified that, even with renovations, Fire Hall #2 could not meet the needs of the District now and into the future and recommended that a larger and more efficiently-designed facility be built.

The District is currently building a new Fire Hall, administration offices and emergency operations centre in Valleycliffe on the site of the previous Alex Munro Fire Hall. Fire Hall No. 2 on Tantalus Road will be rebuilt at its current location. It will be built as a smaller hall to house apparatus and equipment, and designed to contemplate future expansion needs
