City of Victoria Post Disaster Fire Protection System Study

Description:The City currently supplies water to aid in fire suppression to the downtown core through two different pressure distribution systems that are both fed from the Capital Regional District water supply system. The City has recognized the need to improve their post disaster emergency fire fighting system in the downtown core. This presentation provides a high level overview of the process followed to review various options that include a dedicated salt water pump station and fire boat protection system in addition to upgrades to existing infrastructure. The process began with the review and establishment of levels of service and design criteria that engaged multiple stakeholders including the Capital Regional District, fire department, finance department, risk management office, and engineering and operations. This review included a geocoding of fire protection requirements and a geotechnical seismic risk assessment process. It concluded with the triple bottom line life cycle evaluation of the various options and identification of a preferred option.
