Sunday October 23, 2005

A fire chief took charge of the Service Incendie de Rivière Beaudette, in the absence of director Stéphane Trottier. Heidi Parent, 10 was named for the day.

She had a busy day. To start she received a shirt, helmet, bunker suit and her pager. Once the presentation was done she supervised the maintenance work in the station. At about 13:50 a call was put out on the air for a vehicle on fire at the Lalonde sand pit. Once on the scene firefighters aided by the chief extinguished the fire. Returning to the station the cleaning detail was done and with all of the vehicles cleaned and back in service the firefighters ate at a restaurant in the company of their chief.

On behalf of myself and the department I would like to thank the Garage Dicaire, Carrosseries D.C. for towing the vehicle and Mathieu Cormier for his vehicle. Not to forget the firefighters who wanted to participate in this day.
