Prince Rupert Fire/Rescue Report notes of increased calls in July from one year ago


Members of the Prince Rupert Fire Department had a busy July, with the Department dispatched to 174 incidents through the month, making for a jump in the year to year totals from a year ago when they responded to just 143 incidents.

The note on service is part of a report for Prince Rupert City Council this evening, with Fire Chief Jeff Beckwith also reporting on two structural fires from the month of July, one on McBride Street, the other on Cow Bay Road, in both instances the loss to property was 1.000 and 1,500 dollars respectively.

Fire fighters also responded to one Motor Vehicle Incident, 10 nuisance or non structural fires as well as one explosion. 

Other elements of the report to be delivered tonight include  themes of fire prevention and public education, Training and upgrading and the maintenance work on apparatus and equipment.

More notes related to tonight's Council Session can be reviewed here.
