It was a learning experience for some volunteer firefighters last night, July 18, at the Riverside Terrace.
"We went down and talking to them (residents) about their fire drill, plus it was a good opportunity for us to have a tour through the building and have a practice for our new members," stated Drumheller Fire Chief, Bruce Wade.
"It was a good opportunity for them to be around the trucks, position the trucks if we ever have a call at Riverview Terrace and get everybody familiar with the procedures."
So far, there has been around eight new volunteer members. So, could the Drumheller and surrounding areas use more volunteers?
"We're always looking for volunteers. Right at this moment we could really use people in Rosedale and East Coulee. If there are some people that live in those areas or are just interested in joining either give me a call, leave a message at the hall (403-823-1323) or pick up an application at the Town of Drumheller," outlined Wade.
Wade reported to 99.5 Drum FM for locals and tourists alike to be cautious of our conditions.
"People need to be very aware of the dry conditions out around the area and just to be very aware of their fires, campsite and those types of things. We don't necessarily want to be out in the heat chasing grass fires," he concluded.
