Port Edward Fire/Rescue once again on the search for volunteer members
It's a department that covers a large part of the territory as part of its service to the District of Port Edward and as Summer approaches, the Port Edward Fire/Rescue Department is looking to get more volunteers in place and trained to lend a hand to their community.
A Spring recruiting drive is currently underway, with the Port Edward department looking to for applicants age 19 years of age and over.
Applicants can live in either Port Edward or Prince Rupert, but must have a clean drivers abstract and be able to pass a criminal records check.
Beyond their work within the urban portion of the District, the department also has responsibility for calls along Highway 16, with Port Edward crews frequently called to assist on incidents towards the Tyee overpass.
You can find out more about the Spring recruiting drive by contacting Fire Chief Shawn Pettitt at 250-600-7262.
