Crowsnest Pass Fire/Rescue

For all of you that have any interest in the Crowsnest Pass Fire and Rescue situation. The long awaited Fire/Rescue Master plan will be presented to council on Tuesday afternoon at the G+P meeting at 2pm.

I wonder what would happen if council determines that they don't want to go with a Full time Chief and Deputy Chief plus full time Firemen or disagree with the direction or contents of the plan?

There is much speculation that a couple of Fire Halls will be closed, I don't think so, the timing does not work for the politicians being an election year. I think all of the stations will be maintained has storage facilities and to allow responders quicker access to equipment for now.

Later on at the Council meeting 7pm I see one of the items on the agenda is:
Donated Used Apparel and Old Surplus Fire Apparatus Removed, it will be interesting to see what was on the list.

Not likely to close any of the fire halls until after the coming election. But doors are being closed by donating “surplus” equipment.

Lets not forget these guys are trying to get re-elected. For that reason I do not believe a word they say Tuesday. The real plan will come once they have a new four year mandate. If their "silent majority" steps forward.
Imagine how much harm they could do to this community in four years.

Very scary

Silent majority spoke very " loudly" during the Rum Runner weekend. These guys just don't get it.
