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 beautiful civic image.

No. 2 Hall
11011 No. 2 Road, Richmond, BC V7E 2E6
The 8.000 sq. ft. Steveston Fire Hall #2, is a two bay drive-through fire hall built on a small corner lot.
The footprint of the fire hall is set obliquely on the site to accommodate the ingress and egress of emergency apparatus. 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.
