Predator firefighters wanted

The call is being put out for more volunteer firefighters in Vernon

The call is being put out for more volunteer firefighters in Vernon.

And specifically, the department is looking for individuals to bolster the ranks at the new hall at Predator Ridge.

“We’d like to see more manpower up there,” said chief Keith Green.

Presently, there are about five people stationed at the hall but the goal is to have at least another five more.

A recruitment program for volunteers will be held during the fall.

It’s hoped some single people may consider signing up as firefighters because living quarters are currently being developed at the fire hall.

“The drywall is done and we are waiting for the painting crew,” said Green.

Also this fall, an engine and a water tender will be stationed at the Predator Ridge hall.
