The Comox Firefighters Association has donated $2,500 to the Redwood Meadows Emergency Services.
Redwood Meadows fire department provides protection to Redwood Meadows and Bragg Creek where much of the recent flooding and damage in Alberta occurred. Some members the Redwood Meadows fire department had their homes damaged and the fire department had to evacuate their own fire station for a couple of days. The Comox firefighters wanted to help and decided it best to provide this small department with a donation.
Chief Gord Schreiner states: “I had the pleasure of working with this small department a few weeks ago when I went there to present some training. I found the department to be a great group of very dedicated and well-trained volunteers. I am so pleased that we (Comox fire) can assist them in moving forward from the difficult times they and their community has just gone through.”
Comox Firefighters Association president Terry Dean states: “The fire service in one big family and we are very pleased to assist our brothers and sisters in another department.”
A couple of members of the Redwood Meadows fire department are scheduled to attend some training at the Comox Fire Training Centre this fall.
Comox Firefighters have made thousands of dollars in donations to many different groups and causes over the past few years.
