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!
