The public is invited to come down and join the Penticton Fire Department in welcoming its newest engine on Thursday.

From 6:30 until 7:30 p.m. on July 13, the fire department will hold the housing ceremony at Fire Hall 202 for the engine.

The public is invited to attend 285 Dawston Street to help with washing and drying the new engine, and then join in pushing it into the bay of the fire hall.

“The new truck belongs to the people of Penticton and this is a chance for everyone to be part of inaugurating the latest addition to our fleet,” said Captain Ryan Bazley. “It’s a fun way to be involved, see the hall, beat the heat and be part of a PFD tradition. We hope to see a lot of people out on Thursday.”

The new Engine 202 combines the department’s existing Rescue 202 and Engine 202 into a single vehicle, which will allow firefighters to respond to things, for example, such as motor vehicle crashes followed by a house fire without having to return to the station to swap vehicles.
