Residents of Winfield and area can sleep a bit easier thanks to the acquisition of a new pumper truck which was recently purchased by the local fire department and the County of Wetaskiwin, as part of the implementation of the County’s long-term Strategic Planning for fire services.

Planning for the equipment commenced in 2001 at which time a need was identified for the replacement of the current 1981 pumper with a new unit in 2007/08. During the previous three years strategies were developed, which included the fire mill rate being adjusted to allow for the purchase of this unit.

“The great fire and rescue service provided by the Winfield Fire Department will be further enhanced with the arrival of the new unit,” said County Councilor Nancy Watson. “Our volunteers and board members can be proud to continue to serve their community with this new equipment”.

County Fire Chief Ken Carlson acknowledged the outstanding support and efforts of County Council and the Winfield Fire Department volunteers and board members for their part in planning for and acquiring the much-needed equipment.
