You may notice some action along Queen Street East (in front of Independent Grocery) and Road 120 (near Fawcett Tractor Supply) tomorrow evening as the St. Marys Fire Department and Zorra Fire Department - Uniondale Station conduct a pumper relay and tanker shuttle training.

Training will take place on July 14 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., and is designed to give firefighters practice dealing with areas with limited hydrant service.

“The backbone of any fire department is training.” St. Marys Fire Chief Richard “Andy” Anderson says. “Our service area covers some remote locations where fire hydrants are not always readily available. Having our team continuously trained to fight fires in these scenarios can make a big difference in the level of devastation a fire may cause.”

The joint training is possible due to the Mutual Aid Agreement between the St. Marys Fire Department and the Township of Zorra. The Agreement allows participating fire departments to request and receive assistance from neighbouring fire departments when needed.
