Work has started on a new fire hall in Vernon.

A ground-breaking ceremony was held Monday to kick off the project at Predator Ridge.

"There is a benefit for residents of Predator Ridge from a safety perspective," said Keith Green, Vernon fire chief.

"There are significant interface issues (grass, timber). We've seen summers get drier and we expect that trend to continue."

It's anticipated the $600,000 project will be completed by the end of October, and it will be stationed by volunteer firefighters.

Predator Ridge is currently served by firefighters from the downtown Vernon hall.
