70 Mile Volunteer Fire Department Receives $25,000 through FCC AgriSpirit Fund

70 Mile House Volunteer Fire Department is receiving $25,000 to drill a high volume well for community fire protection.

The Department is 1 of 78 community groups across Canada which is receiving between $5,000 and $25,000 through Farm Credit Canada’s AgriSpirit Fund.

Farm Credit Canada says that 1,214 applications were received this year nationally for the Fund which was increased to $1.5 million in honor of the 150th anniversary of Canada’s confederation.

“The FCC AgriSpirit Fund is an investment in rural Canada,” said Sophie Perreault, FCC executive vice-president and chief operating officer. “It’s about partnering with individuals and groups who are committing their time and energy for the purpose of bettering their communities.”
