Name of creator
The Alta Lake Fire Department was created in 1962, and its first Fire Chief was Dick Fairhurst. In 1979/80 the Public Safety Building was built in the future Whistler Village. This building acted as the Fire Hall for Whistler from then on, and the Fire department later became a paid employer.
Scope and content
Report by the Alta Lake Volunteer Fire Department regarding fire hazards in the area. The report notes that the current Volunteer Fire Department is not large or well-equipped enough to protect the entire area and urges all residents to be conscious of preventative fire safety measures. It contains a list of firefighting equipment (and lack thereof) in each of five zones of the Alta Lake area as of July 1970.
