100 Mile House residents can expect to hear sirens and see flashing lights this (March 27) evening.
That’s because first responders in the South Cariboo will be coming together to say thank you to all medical staff, grocery store staff, businesses, and essential services, with a 30-second code 3 salute.
“We are not asking the public to come out but just to give them the heads up that this is happening so they’re not frightened from any of the lights or sirens that will occur,” said 100 Mile Fire Rescue Chief Roger Hollander.
“This only going to be at 7 o’clock and only on a weekly basis”.
Hollander added that they will be lining outside of various facilities in 100 Mile House like Save On Foods and FreshCo, and that tonight is their first night to be doing this.
The idea for the salute came from a member of the 108 Volunteer Fire Department.
