Local West Fraser Mills has donated new equipment to the Quesnel Fire Department. The equipment includes a set of pneumatic air bags, and a firefighting water monitor.
The Department is happy about the new equipment stating the air bags will assist them in saving lives. They will help crews access narrow areas, that other equipment and tools could not reach.
“This equipment will greatly increase our capabilities to help rescue who could be trapped in their vehicle, or under heavy equipment.” City of Quesnel Fire Chief, Sylvian Gauthier said.
