New Emergency Response Vehicle Compliments the St. Clair Fleet

St. Clair Township received a new weapon in its arsenal against disaster recently. It came in the form of a 2003 Freightliner chassis pumper/rescue vehicle, and it will be housed at the Corunna Station of the St. Clair Township fire department. The truck, made in Red Deer, Alberta, arrived at the station on Aug. 22.

Chief Dewhirst says a new vehicle of this type has a front line life of about 20 years. After that, it is used in a backup capacity and is usually replaced. With the addition of the new truck, the St. Clair Township fire department currently boast a fleet of 25 vehicles.

In memory of the tragedy of Sept. 11, the new truck bears a unique logo on the sides of its engine hood. A firefighters insignia is emblazoned with a red, white and blue ribbon to commemorate the courage of the emergency responders who fell in the line of duty.

A Thank You to the Community

With boots in hand Corunna Volunteer Firefighters collected over $2,600 on Oct. 6th to help the families of the New York Firefighters who died as a result of the Sept. 11th terrorist attack. A special thank you to Allison Vickerd for organizing the fundraiser. As a show of the Corunna stations own support for the New York emergency workers, it has chipped in another $500 to the relief effort.

July 02, 2001 On May 31, 2001, 10 Corunna Volunteer Firefighters raised $1,600.00 for the Canadian Cancer Society by shaving their heads in the "Heads For a Cure" campaign. CONGRATULATIONS (photo)
