The services you provide and the area you service: We are a small rural volunteer fire department. trying to look after our farming community needs. We look after the RM of Eaglecreek 376 and a couple of divisions in the RM of Glenside 377 due to our fie hall location and some volunteers are from Glenside RM 377

History of your team: Our department was brought back to life in June 2019. Like all volunteer departments, age is hard on them. We campaigned with the locals and got new volunteers. We have the heart just lacking funds but thanks to equipment donations we are slowly rebuilding.

Involvement in the community: We are the community and since we all rely on farming as income we don't have a lot of infrastructure in our RM to build our fire department.

How this could change your life? : This money would change our life to get us the second truck we really need. The second truck we are looking at is a crew cab 4x4 with a foam suppression system that we could arrive at fires faster. Also, another truck would be beneficial in storing equipment. As of right now we are loading extra gear in our pickup trucks which reduces our speed to calls.
