Investigations

Surrey's specialized and respected investigation team has 5 members who follow up on all fire incidents in the City of Surrey to determine cause and origin.

This information is forwarded to the Fire Commissioner's Office for data input. This information contributes to the accumulation of information used to track patterns and common problems found throughout the Province of British Columbia.

The dissemination of this information has led to the compilation “Residential Fires in Surrey B.C” (1988 – 2007) by Amanda V. McCormick.
