Rimbey fire fighters will have better lighting in the future thanks to a $2,000 donation from ATCO Gas.

The department has purchased five high-intensity safety scene lighting for its newly acquired multi-purpose response vehicle.

Fire Chief, John Weisgerber said the lights are a definite bonus.

“When you improve scene lighting, you improve scene safety,” he said, noting that whether it be day or night, visibility is often compromised by smoke.

“The new state-of-the art lighting equipment will improve firefighting safety and effectiveness when it’s needed most.”

Bill Stephens, president, ATCO gas said the company is pleased to help out the fire department.

“This new lighting equipment is one way we can help Rimbey first responders protect their own lives as well as the lives and property of those they serve.”

ATCO Gas delivers natural gas distribution service to more than one million customers in nearly 300 Alberta communities and is part of the ATCO Group of Companies. ATCO Group has more than 9,800 employees.
