Harrison Council supports regional fire training grant application

Outgoing council has light agenda during final meeting

The Harrison Hot Springs Village Council wrapped up the 2022 term with a final council meeting on Monday (Oct. 17).

The agenda for the final meeting of the term, with only one item for the council’s review. Council unanimously approved writing a letter of support for the District of Kent’s grant application to the Community Emergency Preparedness Fund in order to develop a regional fire training facility at the Agassiz Fire Hall.

Agassiz fire chief Gerald Basten presented on the topic of regional fire training facility during the Oct. 6 Lets’emot Community to Community (C2c) Forum in Sts’ailes. The idea was met with universally positive feedback.

The regional facility would allow for opportunities for multiple fire departments across the region and help strengthen bonds and teamwork during mutual aid situations.

The new council – John Buckley, Leo Facio, Allan Jackson and Michie Vidal – and mayor-elect Ed Wood will be sworn in on November 7.

The next regular council meeting is scheduled for Monday (Nov. 7) at 7 p.m. at Memorial Hall (290 Esplanade Avenue). If you cannot come in person, you may register to attend via Zoom online at harrisonhotsprings.ca.
