Fire departments working together

The local fire chief says their new memorandum of understanding with the 19 Wing military base in Comox is a great arrangement.

Ian Baikie says now they can call upon the Wing for help without needing formal approval from the Province or the Federal Government.

Baikie says the military do have some specialized equipment that could be really useful in specific events.

Under the new mutual aid agreement the Wing can call on Campbell River fire fighters for help too. The Campbell River fire department already has resource sharing agreements with about 10 fire departments including those in the Comox Valley.
