Fire department looking for people to help keep force strong

The Harrison Hot Springs Fire Department has been protecting the community since 1942, thanks to generations of hard-working firefighters.

And now, they are looking for a few more neighbours to join the team.

They will be holding a recruiting drive open house on Saturday, Oct. 25, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the firehall.

They are specifically looking for residents of the Village of Harrison Hot Springs who live in close proximity to the firehall and are able to respond to calls during work hours.

Applications are going to be available at the open house, which is also open to the general public. Applications are also available online at the Village website, or by phone 604-796-9966, or any Tuesday night at the firehall.
