The Tyee Lake Volunteer Fire Department has been training weekly, with COVID-19 safeguards in mind, keeping its members’ certifications up to date.
Having acquired a brush truck and water tender they are prepared to keep the community safe in the event of a wildfire.
The TLVFD has also been putting in many hours, along with other members of the community, to finish the interior of its fire/community hall with hopes they will be able to train and hold community fundraising events year round.
