presented with the keys to our new tanker/tender truck.
Actually, it's not new. Rocky View County was able to upgrade some of its older fire fighting equipment and this truck was declared surplus. It still has years of service left in it, so the County offered it to our incredible volunteer fire department here in Beiseker.
Beiseker itself is serviced by a network of fire hydrants, but when our firefighters tend to a fire outside the village, they'll now be able to haul more than 10 000 litres of water with them. This will be particularly good for highway responses and grass fires.
Thank you so much Rocky View County! Good on ya!
