The Compass - - FRONT PAGE -

In a story which ap­peared in the July 12 is­sue of The Com­pass, it was re­ported: “Har­bour Grace is the only vol­un­teer fire brigade on the Avalon out­side the cap­i­tal city trained and equipped to han­dle high-an­gle and cold wa­ter res­cue calls.”

The Har­bour Grace Vol­un­teer Fire Brigade pro­vided that in­for­ma­tion to the pa­per dur­ing the course of an in­ter­view on the fact the brigade is to re­ceive a new multi-func­tion res­cue/fire-fight­ing ve­hi­cle later this year.

Wayne Worth­man, chief of the Heart’s De­light-Is­ling­ton Vol­un­teer Fire Depart­ment, has since con­tacted The Com­pass to in­form the pa­per that: “Our vol­un­teer fire brigade is also equipped and trained to han­dle both high­angle and cold wa­ter calls, and have been trained to do so for many years.”

The chief went on to say: “ We take pride in know­ing our vol­un­teer fire­men are trained to bet­ter serve and pro­tect the cit­i­zens of Heart’s De­lightIs­ling­ton, and know­ing we are able and ca­pa­ble of han­dling high-an­gle and cold wa­ter res­cue calls, should the need arise.”
