100 Mile House has four new firefighters keeping it safe, plus 1.
100 Mile Fire /Rescue chief Roger Hollander says four new recruits have recently completed over 90 hours of recruit training and are now qualified to respond to limited emergencies.
A fifth young firefighter student recruit has also completed training.
The training included firefighter safety, ladders, fire behavior, emergency scene traffic control, and many more subjects.
The new members are now on-call paid firefighters, and will continue training to reach professional firefighter qualification through the National Fire Protection Association, as well as other courses in rescue and medical procedures.
