A welcome addition for the fire hall in Warfield as five new volunteers have been added to the roster.
Regional Fire Chief Terry Martin says it’s a good step as attracting volunteers is getting tougher.
Martin says he is happy with the level of staffing around the six halls in his jurisdiction, but would still like to see them all equipped with 25 fire fighters as some halls have 15.
The new volunteers in Warfield were “recruit-trained” so they are ready to respond to calls.
He says the department will work very hard to retain these volunteers and further their training.
