On the third day of his new job, Prince Edward County’s new fire chief was pleased to witness the presentation of a surplus fire pumper/tanker heading to the Nibinamik First Nation land area known as Summer Beaver, about 500km north of Thunder Bay.

The presentation was made Wednesday at the Picton station, to Firefighters Without Borders Canada directors, who also collected a positive pressure fan, 30 sets of boots, some coveralls, flash hoods and gloves.

“I’m so pleased this is going to a great community,” said Chad Brown, the County’s new fire chief. “It was a great opportunity for us to donate to this First Nations community to be able to use this truck in a time of need. We will continue to do all we can in support of public safety.”

The truck had been listed on a government auction site with a reserve of $5,000. Its style usually sells for between that and $10,000.
