Efforts to establish an official Riske Creek Volunteer Fire Department are ongoing, said chief Mike Elvin.
“It’s a big process, and a heap of paper work, and we’ve been working on this since the beginning of the year, but it’s coming along and we’re getting a lot of community support,” Elvin said.
Elvin said United Way, the McLeese Lake Volunteer Fire Department, West Fraser, the Barrier Volunteer Fire Department, Gibraltar Mine and multiple Williams Lake business have contributed to their upstart goal of making the department official.
“We all learned after the 2017 fires working together is our future,” Elvin said. “We are still in need of support and help with fire gear.”
