Bob Walker and Peter McKie moved the trucks into the new hall today! It will be great to have the extra room while working on the trucks.

There are still some details to finish in the next couple of months. It’s been a huge project, and it will leave a legacy for current and future home owners of South Green Lake much like the original Fred Potter Memorial Hall did. All of the work that the volunteers have done in years gone past is what can be accomplished by working together! Firefighters, Ladies Auxiliary and Board members are very much appreciated for the ongoing work that is required to keep the department going.

Thank you!

New Pumper Update

As the summer gets into full swing with some very nice weather, we have been working on getting the new pumper into service. I’ve had the truck into Larson’s in 100 Mile House for some repairs on Friday, July 13th! I stopped by Nip & Tuck Upholstery to have Timothy give us a quote on the the rear seat repairs. Then off to see Michele at Heritage Signs for the new decals. I spent over 2 hours removing the Kamloops decals while Michele made the new decals. She copied what was on Pumper 2 and it looks great!

You can click on the picture for a larger version. There are more pictures here.

We have been getting quotes for hose and equipment that will be needed for the new truck and we will be reviewing the 4 quotes that have been received.
