With a few quiet days and bright sunshine the Williams Lake Fire Dept. is seizing the opportunity to do its annual hose maintenance.
Beginning last evening and finishing up today, the crews are checking all of the hoses, something they do every year about this time.
Firefighter Brendan Footer said the department did respond to a small call Friday evening in the River Valley where someone had a small campfire going.
“It wasn’t very big, but it’s a reminder that there are no campfires allowed in the city limits unless you are using an approved backyard fire pit,” he said.
Residents can check in with the fire department at 250-392-4321 to ensure it meets requirements or check the Fire Protection and Control Bylaw.
