In the last week there have been 2 instances that campfires have been abandoned without being put out. It is vitally important to put campfires out before leaving the area.Please be responsible when having campfires as it is extremely dry and it wouldn’t take much to have a bad fire season.

First Truck in New Hall!

Pumper 1, our new (to us) pumper is now parked its new home! Bob Walker backed it in after this evenings fire practice!


It’ll be nice to have the space to work on the truck! Bob’s happy!!

Fire Practice

It’s fire practice tonight!

And the new building is ready for the trucks. We will be bringing the new pumper and the tender to the new building. The concrete floor and aprons have been curing for a month now and have been sealed.

Some siding, exterior trim painting, ventilation sheet metal, ventilation electrical and gas hookup for heating still needs to be done. We are hoping to have it complete by fall.

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.

Cariboo Fire Centre Update

Fire activity has increased in the Cariboo

WILLIAMS LAKE – Cariboo Fire Centre personnel have responded to over a dozen new fires in the past 24 hours. Many of the fires have remained small; however, there are two fires of note at this time.

There is a fire burning approximately 15 kilometres southwest of Chimney Lake that has grown to roughly 80 hectares in size. The winds this afternoon have challenged airtankers, which have been dropping retardant on the fire for most of the afternoon. Crews and equipment will be working on this fire through the night.

No structures are threatened by this fire at this time; however, the fire has crossed Enterprise Road and the Cariboo Fire Centre is asking the public not to use the road at this time.

There is another fire that is estimated at three hectares in size that is highly visible from Williams Lake. The fire is located about 15 kilometres west of Williams Lake on the west side of the Fraser River. Airtankers have dropped retardant on this fire and there are currently eight personnel and one piece of heavy equipment on-site.

The Cariboo Fire Centre thanks the public for continuing to report wildfires. To report a wildfire or unattended campfire, please call *5555 on your cell phone or call 1-800-663-5555 toll-free.

Annual Pumper 2 Test

On Tuesday July 10th Hub did our annual test for Pumper 2. We set up at Access 5 for the test as it has the deepest shoreline that is accessible to the trucks. Last year we did it at the Sunset View boat launch, but this year we were doing it later so we didn’t want to tie up the boat launch.

Pumper 2 passed with no problems. It performed flawlessly! There are more pictures in the Photo Album.
