In this month's Municipal Newsletter #65, October 17, 2012 the following can be found:
FIRE AND RESCUE SERVICES UPDATE
As most of you know, RCMP and the Explosives Regulatory Division of Natural Resources Canada removed 640 kilograms of explosives from a storage room in the Blairmore fire station early Tuesday morning. The Municipality now considers this matter closed. An audit is being conducted by an outside agency into the station’s operational processes and finances. (bold and italics emphasis mine) The Fire Services Master Plan will be rolled out in the very near future and will enhance the operational capacity and training for the local firefighters. A joint training session for all stations was held on Wednesday evening, October 17th at Station 24 where approximately 25 fire service personnel were in attendance. Equipment from all stations participated in the training exercise.
Crowsnest Pass Fire Rescue current staffing compliment is 45 fire personnel as of October 18th, 2012. We can respond to any incident with a minimum of 15 personnel which surpasses industry best practices. We are committed to provide the level of service expected by our citizens. More information and updates will follow on our progressive plan to move forward.
Comment: Sounds like administration is searching for more than just fireworks this time, now doesn't it?
The only people who find what they are looking for in life are the fault finders.
