Contest Alert!Electrical burn injuries can be devastating and life-altering. To bring awareness to the seriousness of electrical and fire safety, the Office of the Fire Commissioner is partnering with Technical Safety BC and the BC Professional Firefighters’ Burn Fund on a smoke alarm giveaway on Facebook. There will be seven lucky winners!

Newest Addition to the Fleet

Thanks to a lot of hard work from our volunteers, we got the snow plow in-service by Dec 21.  This will allow us to react quickly if we get a big snowfall, clearing the lot. In the past we have relied on volunteers with small machines or occasionally Interior Roads would plow the lot for us.

With Dry Hydrants in our future at access 5 and 10, we will also be able to keep them plowed in the event we need water.

I would personally like to thank the executive for thinking of the future and all our dedicated volunteers for making us ready for whatever winter brings us before the Christmas Holidays.

With this level of commitment by all our volunteers, as our mission statement states, ‘We are ensuring a Safe Community”
