Aug 6, 2019

The Cariboo Regional District Board has appointed Shannon Wagner as the new fire chief for the Forest Grove volunteer fire department. Chief Wagner was elected by the fire department membership and the Board has appointed her for a three-year term.

“Congratulations Shannon. Thank you for stepping up into this position and committing to serve the Forest Grove community,” states CRD Chair Margo Wagner and Area H Director. “Our Board and staff are looking forward to working with you over the next three years.”

“I also want to say thank you to the outgoing Forest Grove fire chief, Aron Zablotny, for his dedication and service to the community. The service and commitment of all our fire and search and rescue department members and Chiefs is tremendous and we cannot say thank you enough.”

The CRD’s Protective Services department provides a variety of services throughout the Cariboo Chilcotin, including 9-1-1, emergency planning, search and rescue, highway rescue and structural fire protection.

The Cariboo Regional District oversees 14 volunteer fire departments and Central Cariboo Search and Rescue. The CRD has fire protection agreements with the municipalities of 100 Mile House, Quesnel and Williams Lake for CRD residents on the fringe of those communities. The Regional District also contributes financially to the South Cariboo and Quesnel Highway Rescue teams as well as the Quesnel, South Cariboo and West Chilcotin Search and Rescue groups.
