Kelowna is situated on one of the finest and busiest recreational lakes in Canada. Okanagan Lake offers everything from pleasure craft boating, sandy beaches, waterfront homes, and SCUBA diving. The Kelowna Fire Department recognized the need for a quick responding and reliable rescue boat for both marine applications as well as fire fighting on both land and water many years ago. Our Boston Whaler is kept at the Kelowna Yacht club where it is accessed by the nearby Station #2 firehall for timely responses. We are obviously kept very busy during the summer months but do operate the Marine Rescue program for 12 months out of the year. Each platoon has a trained crew that works out of Station #2 in order to answer any calls for help that may arise.
