Osoyoos fire department gets major boost

$25K of gear for fire crew

The Osoyoos Fire Department now has $25,000 worth of new equipment thanks to a successful grant application. 

A Union of BC Municipalities grant allowed them to make the purchases. 

"The new equipment significantly elevates OFR's ability to fight wild-land fires within our urban interface, working a wet line from portable water supplies and set up sprinklers around structures and critical infrastructure during wildfire events," the department explained on social media.

All of the gear is fully interchangeable with that used by the BC Wildfire Service and partners at Anarchist Mountain, Keremeos and Oliver.
