Torrent Safety Services

Torrent Safety Services is a division of Torrent Silviculture. It boasts a large fleet of MTCs attached to 2020 or newer 4x4 off road capable trucks. All units have VHF radio and satellite communication meeting the requirements set out by Transport Canada’s regulations for ambulatory service. We provide on-site services and safety solutions for clients such as the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource - BC Wildfire Services. Our safety services span throughout the Central Interior and Northern British Columbia. For the last couple of years we have been the largest contract medic company in British Columbia supporting BC Wildfires.   

Torrent holds SAFE certification, endorsed by the BC Forest Safety Council. All Torrent First Aid Attendants have a minimum of an OFA Level 3 qualification, and are trained in both minor wound care, and major trauma life saving interventions, including CPR and AED use. Our First Aid Attendants are equipped to comply with - or exceed - all provincial standards set out by Work Safe BC. Attendants are trained in the use of road radios, driving in back road conditions, and all paperwork that may be required in the field.

Torrent strives to hire all levels of experience and ages for its planting operations. New workers are integral for the industry, and by incorporating them into our company it provides an element of sustainability for future seasons. We believe there are many advantages to having a diverse range of experience throughout our crews. Our more experienced workers are able to share knowledge that you can only get in the field with less experienced workers, ultimately helping to create a more safe and ready workforce. By promoting diversity within our crews, we hope to create an environment which prompts curiosity and open dialogue, where everyone can learn something new from each other.

While silviculture has had a reputation of being a college or university students' summer job which helps pay for their education, it has become a career for many of our employees. Due to its high paying work it can provide stability, community, and an ever-changing work environment for those involved. Torrent also offers post-planting work such as fire work, medic work, brushing, and slash pile burning. Silviculture as an industry is constantly changing, but one thing that is constant is its draw to creative, hardworking individuals who aren't afraid to get their hands dirty.

Torrent is a SAFE certified company, meeting and exceeding highest safety standards within the industry. Through our training, dedicated crew bosses and supervisors, and in-depth anti-harassment training, we pride ourselves in creating a safe space for all genders, sexual orientations, races and religions.
