Wellington North Fire gets a new Command Vehicle

MOUNT FOREST – The Canadian Tire Store in Mount Fores is donating a new Command Vehicle to the Wellinton North Fire Services.
Owner/Manager Melissa Honour says this partnership is great for everyone. It allows the Fire Department to promote fire safety and it shows the local Canadian Tires commitment to giving back to the community.
Fire Chief Dave Guillbault says the idea came together after he saw a replica self powered truck at the local store and mentioned to Honour that it would look great as a full size fire vehicle. Honour agreed and the new truck is now part of the departments fire safety educational tools. The unit received custom decals prepared by Print Positive in Arthur.
The unit will be used as an educational tool and to also promote fire safety to kids. Look for it in upcoming Christmas parades.
