New fire agreements for Beaverlodge, Hythe and Wembley

The County of Grande Prairie will fight fires in Beaverlodge, Hythe and Wembley for at least another five years. The towns have signed a new agreement to contract the County’s fire protection services.

It’ll cost them a flat fee of $90,000, which includes a building in each community. There will be a 3.5 per cent annual increase to cover the cost of services and inflation.

The County will still pay for dispatch, the foam needed to put out fires, fuel for trucks and a Medical First Response unit. Also part of the deal, each municipality will keep any money made by responding to calls on provincial highways.
