Chief Keith Laboucan joined PGRHR (formerly FGHR) in 2004 after being intrigued by the idea of selflessly giving to the community in the form of risking himself to save others. Working his way through the ranks, Keith became Chief of the organization in 2009, the youngest in the history of the department. He also contributes by being the active Training Officer for the department. He has strived to develop and improve rescue techniques and upgrades equipment to bring the department to where it is today.
In 2014, Keith was awarded by Emergency Management BC the Public Safety Lifeline Volunteer Award in the Road Rescue category. Through his years with PGRHR, he has held multiple positions on the board and worked his way through all of the ranks: Captain, Assistant Chief, Training Officer, and finally, Chief.
When away from PGRHR, Keith works in the auto insurance and estimation field. He enjoys spending time being active, travelling, hiking, and spending time in the sun.
