16 members traveled to Veolia Water on Monday night for our 2nd drill of the month.
The drill consisted of drafting with Squad 26 and going over our Mercury Quick Attack Monitor which is pre-connected on Quint 26.


While training our members assisted Veolia Water with flushing the standpipes on the dam.

The reservoir at Viola water is one of our main drafting sites for a fire on that side of the township.

President Hunt and Chief Ent display the new AED’s

The Officers and Members would like to thank Enbridge for awarding the Fire Company a grant to replace our aging Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s). The AED’s are essential equipment for Emergency Service First Responders. The grant will allow us to replace our existing AED’s to include one in each vehicle and one in each fire station. With the new AED’s all being the same model it will streamline training and the stocking of consumable items.
Thank You again to Enbridge for being a good neighbor and supporter.

Enbridge is a diversified energy company positioned to help accelerate the global transition to a cleaner energy future. We move about 30% of the crude oil produced in North American, we transport nearly 20% of the natural gas consumed in the U.S., and we operate North America's largest natural gas utility by volume. Enbridge was an early investor in renewable energy, and we have a growing offshore wind portfolio. We value safety, integrity, respect, inclusion and high performance. Above all else, we aim to make a difference, economically and socially-as an industry leader, as a responsible corporate citizen, as an exceptional employer.
