THE MAPLE RIDGE CAMPUS
JIBC’s Maple Ridge campus is located about 58 kilometres east of Vancouver. It is designed for hands-on firefighting practice and training delivered by the Fire & Safety Division. Among its unique simulation training props are a three-storey concrete burn building, a ship’s steel superstructure and an 11-car train derailment.
“Located between the Golden Ears Mountains and the Fraser River, Maple Ridge is a scenic, forested community with a natural beauty. For the outdoor enthusiasts, the close to 200 kilometres of accessible trails on the dykes and winding through the forest feature outstanding views of majestic mountains, gentle rolling farmland, refreshing streams, rivers and lakes and wildlife such as eagles, hawks, herons and cranes. The community itself is divided into several different and notable neighbourhoods and historical areas, each of which is identified by local stories, significant cultural groups or historical events that date back well over 100 years.”
