Our Fire Halls
Brighouse (City Centre)
No. 1 Hall
6960 Gilbert Road, Richmond, BC V7C 3V4
Officially opened September 15, 2018, the 25,000 square foot new facility replaced the 50-year-old 17,000 square foot original Brighouse location.
The design of the new fire hall meets strict operational requirements to fulfil the needs of our growing community while also presenting a solid civic image. This new facility is post-disaster rated to ensure it will remain operable should a major seismic event occur. It is also sustainably designed to meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold standards.
In addition to being an operational Fire Hall, it is home to Richmond Fire-Rescue’s administration, Fire Prevention and Community Relations, and Emergency Programs Branches.

No. 2 Hall
11011 No. 2 Road, Richmond, BC V7E 2E6
The Steveston Fire Hall No. 2 is on 3,072 square metres of land owned by the City of Richmond. The two bay drive-through fire hall sits on a small corner lot. The footprint of the fire hall is set obliquely on the site to accommodate the ingress and egress of safety vehicles with large turning radii. Extensive traffic analysis was undertaken to achieve the optimal apparatus bay location and orientation on site.
Situated at the door step of the historic Steveston village community, the fire hall acts as a natural gateway to the community with its hose/training tower announcing its presence as a beacon. Facing the streets, the transparent apparatus bay proudly presents its inner workings to the public with the extensive use of windows; while the day room, kitchen/dining and dormitory are located behind, towards residential neighbourhood as a privacy buffer to residents.
No. 3 Hall
9680 Cambie Road, Richmond, BC V6X 1K4
The new $20.7 million Cambie Fire Hall No. 3 and Richmond North Ambulance Station replaced the 59 year old Bridgeport Fire Hall and adjacent B.C. Ambulance Service Station. The building is the first facility in a major B.C. city that has combined Fire and Ambulance services in one building.
Locating the two agencies in a single purpose-built facility and co-sharing of some common spaces, provides a number of operational and financial efficiencies. In addition, it provides the potential for joint training activities to further strengthen collaboration and the working relationship between our two agencies.
No. 4 Hall
3911 Russ Baker Way, Richmond, BC V7B 1M7
The 7,300 square feet Sea Island Fire Hall was constructed for occupancy in early 2007. It replaces the former 60 year old “No. 4” Fire Hall, on Lancaster Crescent in the Burkeville community.
The Sea Island Fire Hall was carefully designed with consideration of the surrounding environment, and community needs. Various features were implemented in order to maximize natural ventilation, light, and to preserve the natural elements of the site. Some of these features include green roofs, a geothermal energy field, a storm water management system, and a rainwater collection system.
Other key elements of the building include a two-story fire hall with a 60-foot training and hose-drying tower, two-engine bay garage, and a community accessible meeting room.
