The Chief’s Desk;
This week our crews responded to 40 emergency calls including; A residential fire alarm activation caused by a malfunction, A request from WSP to assist in the removal of a tree blocking SR302 near Minter Creek, A vehicle-pedestrian collision with injuries on Dogwood Ct, And the residential structure fire on 118th Avenue KPN that caused the total loss of the home and contents.
On this Veteran’s Day, I want to say thank you to all that have served or are serving in the armed forces. Your sacrifices make it possible for us to live in the land of the free because of your bravery. In my family I thank my Dad for his 21 years in the Navy and Air Force, my Mom for her service in the Canadian Navy, my Brother Daniel (20 years) and sister-in-law Sherry for their service in the Navy, my Uncle Doug for 30+ years in the Navy, my uncle Harry for his service in the Canadian Army, and my grandfather for his service in the Canadian Army.
This week we finally moved our crews back into the Home fire station after completing the facelift project in the building. We repainted the interior, replaced flooring, counter tops and separated sleeping spaces for more privacy. We also replaced kitchen appliances and upgraded the stove.
Until next week!
Guy R. Allen – Fire Chief
