Keremeos responded to a mutual aid call with the Hedley Volunteer Fire Department last Tuesday, September 13. Coincidentally, the call came in just moments after the two departments finished a cross training exercise involving both departments in a mutual practice.
A structure fire in Hedley was the reason for the mutual aid. A vacant house could not be saved, but nearby neighbouring structures were.
On Thursday, October 13, the Keremeos fire department will be visiting Cawston Primary School to present information on fire safety and on Saturday, October 15 the Keremeos fire department and Fire Pro will be at Valu Plus from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Fire Pro will be offering a Fire Safety Week special of $20 for a 5lb fire extinguisher (they usually retail them for $50). Bring in old fire extinguishers for recycling or servicing.
