Yesterday afternoon I noticed what I thought at first glance was steam coming from my neighbours dryer vent.  As I got closer I could smell the smoke and saw it was billowing out of the vent very quickly.  I ran to the door, banged and rang the doorbell but didn’t get an answer. (No car was in the driveway)

As the RCMP Detachment was literally a few steps away, I headed there.  I had to tell reception who used to own the home and point down the road, because there was no house number on the town home. (Unless it was well hidden)

I was astounded to see the first of the Volunteer Fire Department Members arriving as I was walking out of the RCMP office! Literally minutes after they’d received the call. I rounded the corner to head downtown and some members were already fully dressed and the Fire Truck was pulled out, lights on and ready to go. As I walked to the Plaza I saw several more members driving past heading to the Firehouse.

I would like to thank our Volunteer Fire Department Members for all that they do and how quickly they do it!  You guys are amazing!

    I’m sorry this is late but my roommate and I would also like to give a very heartfelt thank you to the fire department and the police and the lovely person that reported the smoke. It’s lovely to live in such a caring community as Gold River.
