Welcome to the SGVFD


Since the founding of the South Galiano Volunteer Fire Department in 1963, community volunteers have provided support as fire fighters, society directors and fundraisers with further support from all fire district taxpayers. This has allowed our fire department to grow as it fulfills its primary responsibility as a fire and rescue agency, while continually updating skills and equipment to provide a professional service with advanced technology.
