The short survey applies to fire halls in Electoral Areas C, D, E and F.

Responses are expected to help the regional district determine what they can do to attract new firefighters and keep the trained ones they already have on board.

The survey, which takes approximately five minutes to complete can be found at: www.surveymonkey.com/r/csrdfirerecruitment.
