County Fire and TSR reach mutual aid agreement

A Mutual Aid agreement has been finalized between the County of Grande Prairie Regional fire service and the local Technical Search and Rescue chapter.  County Fire Chief Everett Cooke says the agreement allows each party to ask the other for assistance when needed.

“An excellent example of that was just this past winter, there were some quad riders just south of Bezanson that had an incident in the river valley.  We are equipped with services to retrieve them, but TSR was able to provide us additional manpower and resources to remove and extract the individuals safely.”

Cooke adds the agreement will also allow for some training scenarios involving both his staff and TSR personnel.
