Bonner, Q.C.,\nAttorney-General, Victoria, B.C.\nSir,\u2014I beg to submit the Forty-fifth Annual Report of the Fire Marshal for\nthe year ended December 31, 1966. Although there is a slight decrease in the\nnumber of fires over last year, the monetary loss has risen considerably. There were\n6,903 fires with a loss of $23,145,579. A glance at Table III will show that the\ngreatest increase is in the cities and fire districts, the former due in part to increased\nvalues and the latter to a number of large loss fires. Fifty-three of our fires of over\n$50,000 each accounted for some $12,000,000 of our loss. With the exception\nof two large losses in our cities, most of these fires occurred in unorganized districts.\nI am pleased to report a decrease in deaths due to fire, but, as always, the\ngreater number of these fires occurred in the home. Out of the 58 with a loss of\nlife, 44 took place in homes (apartments, dwellings, rooming houses) and were\nresponsible for 49 deaths. More fire-prevention education to recognize home fire\nhazards is still urgendy needed, especially as 50 per cent of these fires were due to\nour ever-present leading cause\u2014smokers' carelessness.\nACTIVITIES OF ENGINEERING DIVISION\nDuring the year this Division approved 1,226 structural plans for public buildings, plans for bulk plants for inflammable liquids, compressed-gas and fertilizer\nplants; plans for distributing systems for compressed gas and oil refineries. A\ntotal of 251 general inspections was made, and 42 inspections under the Compressed Gas Regulation. Seventeen projectionist examinations were held\u2014seven\nfirst class, five second class, and five restricted.\nACTIVITIES OF INVESTIGATION DIVISION\nThis Division investigated 474 fires throughout the year. The results of these\ninvestigations are set out in Table I. These investigations terminated in 19 Court\nappearances, 15 attendances at inquests, and 1 official inquiry.\nACTIVITIES OF FIRE-FIGHTER INSTRUCTIONAL UNITS\nThese units were responsible for 366 instructional sessions, with a total of\n957 fire-fighters receiving training, these men coming from 61 different municipal\nfire departments. A total of 1,098 hours of instruction was provided, with a total\nattendance for the year of 4,335. The units have been responsible for some 275\ninspections and approvals of compressed-gas systems, 476 inspections of buildings\nto eliminate fire hazards, 58 lectures to various groups, and 30 inspections of summer camps.\n7\n N 8 BRITISH COLUMBIA\nACTIVITIES OF EMERGENCY FIRE DEFENCE PLAN\nThe activities of this section included 3 zone meetings, 4 organization meetings,\nand 58 lectures.\nGENERAL DUTIES, ALL DIVISIONS\nGeneral duties of all divisions covered escorts of radioactive materials, lectures\nat fire departments and Local Assistant Fire Marshal orientation courses, supervision of fireworks displays, meetings, lectures, courses, and many other assignments in the course of duty. They also responded to emergencies such as inflammable-liquid spillage accidents and, on request, assisted in the disposal of dangerous\nexplosives.\nDuring emergencies, pumpers manned by our instructors were sent to\nChetwynd, Penticton, and the Rayonier fire. We also provided fire apparatus for\nFort Steele and Barkerville, and provided instruction on the operation of this\napparatus.\nDuring the year four municipal fire-protection surveys were made under section 9 of the Fire Marshal Act.\nOur film library has been used extensively during the year, and we have\nsupplied film to various departments and groups following 514 requests.\nAmendments to regulations passed pursuant to the Fire Marshal Act made\nduring the year included an amendment to the Regulations Governing the Construction, Installation, and Maintenance of Chimneys, Fireplaces, Smokepipes, and Furnace Chambers, and another to the Regulation Governing the Manufacture, Sale,\nStorage, Carriage, and Disposal of Inflammable Liquids and Oils.\nDuring the year, and for the first time in 10 years, the Province of British\nColumbia was host to the annual conference of the Association of Canadian Fire\nMarshals and Fire Commissioners. Representatives came from all across Canada\nand the United States, and we also had a divisional fire officer from Singapore who\nwas here under the Colombo Plan to study fire-prevention methods in Canada.\nI would like to thank the members of the various fire and police departments,\nthe British Columbia Research Council, the National Harbours Board, civil defence\norganizations, and my own staff for excellent co-operation during the year. I\nwould also like to thank members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, especially\nthose who are Local Assistants to the Fire Marshal, municipal police in the Province,\nLocal Assistants to the Fire Marshal, insurance companies and their adjusters, and\nthe Fire Underwriters' Investigation Bureau for co-operation during the year.\nI have the honour to be,\nSir,\nYour obedient servant,\nBASIL NIXON,\nFire Marshal.\n REPORT OF THE FIRE MARSHAL, 1966\nN 9\nTABLE I.\u2014FIRES INVESTIGATED BY THE OFFICE OF THE\nFIRE MARSHAL\nFires investigated\u2014\nAccident or negligence\nIncendiary \t\nUnknown \t\nInvestigations\n130\n243\n101\nTotal\n474\nCharges Laid\nNumber of persons charged\nTotal, 68\nAdults\n34\nNumber of charges laid (in some cases more than one\ncharge was laid against the same person)\u2014\nArson 27\nSetting fire to other substances 9\nOther offences 9\nTotal, 80\nJuveniles\n34\n28\n7\nDisposition of Charges\nConvicted\t\nDismissed\t\nStay of proceedings __\nSetded out of Court\nAcquitted \t\nWithdrawn \t\nPending \t\n23\n5\n5\nTotal, 80\nPersons not charged\u2014Committed to mental hospital\nConvictions for false alarms\t\n1\n4\n7\n20\n2\n2\n4\nTotal, 14\n N 10\nBRITISH COLUMBIA\nTABLE IL\u2014INSPECTIONS MADE AND ORDERS ISSUED BY\nLOCAL ASSISTANTS TO THE FIRE MARSHAL\nCity Municipalities (32)\nInspections\nOrders\nInspections\nOrders\n96\n1.151\n5\nNew Westminster\t\nNorth Vancouver \t\n2,602\n2,961\n1,050\n92\n706\n174\n1,010\n495\n311\n682\n30,019\n799\n9,245\n451\n384\n2\n38 it \t\n7\n778\n1,344\n94\n29\n187\n27\n1,426\n746\n13\n1,279\n1,019\n2\n1\n8\n6\n2\n2\n39\nPort Coquitlam\t\nPort Moody\t\nDawson Creek \t\n1\n3\nRevelstoke-\t\nRossland\t\nTrail\nVancouver \t\nVernon- \u2014\nVictoria \t\nWhite Rock \t\n1 15\nGrand Forks\nKamloops \t\n30\n2\nKimberley \t\nTotals _.\t\n58,824\n509\nDistrict Municipalities (39)\n9,646\n442\n81\n676\n103\n2,102\n454\n14\n6\ni\n1\n3\n2\n3\n1\n1,131\n2,084\n1\n2\nOak Bay \t\n15\nChilliwhack _\nPort Hardy \t\nPowell River \t\nRichmond \t\nDelta -\t\n637\n221\n2\n22\nGold River\t\nSalmon Arm..\t\nSpallumcheen \t\n56\n63\n1,893\n47 '\n491\n300 \u25a0\nKpnt\n557\n21 '\nLangley\t\nSummerland \t\nTadanac\t\nTerrace\u2014 \t\nWest Vancouver \t\nTotals ,,.\n411\n9\n359\n41\n1\n4\nNorth Saanich \t\n21,840\n62\nTown Municipalities (10)\n273\n34\n68\n\t\ni\n2\n163\nCreston. \t\nFort St. John \t\nNorth Kamloops\t\nQuesnel \t\ni\nTotals\t\n538\n3\n REPORT OF THE FIRE MARSHAL, 1966\nN 11\nTABLE II.\u2014INSPECTIONS MADE AND ORDERS ISSUED BY\nLOCAL ASSISTANTS TO THE FIRE MARSHAL-^Continued\nVillage Municipalities (58)\nInspections\nOrders\nInspections\nOrders\n56\n9\n13\n10 i\n1\n1\n2\nNatal \t\n11\n4\n~422\n~~ 3\n151\n38\n17\n42\n1\n2\nAennofield \t\nAWt Ray\nNew Denver.. -\t\n5\ninn Mi(p.
