The Bella Coola Fire Local Service Area was established in 1992 when the Regional District became responsible for the defunct improvement district which had provided fire protection, street lighting and water service to the Bella Coola town site located in Electoral Area E.

A small but dedicated group of volunteers man the function and maintain the fire hall and equipment. This service is also the subject of a mutual aid agreement between all volunteer fire departments in the Bella Coola Valley, or Electoral Areas C, D and E. It includes the Hagensborg Waterworks and Noosatsum Waterworks Improvement Districts as well as the Nuxalk Nation Fire Department.

Fire protection services in Ocean Falls are the responsibility of the Ocean Falls Improvement District. The Heiltsuk Nation has the authority in Bella Bella, and the Wuikinuxv Nation in Oweekeno.
