In the be­gin­ning, the big­gest prob­lems were smash­ing the old ri­val­ries that ex­isted be­tween the towns.

The bri­gade lost a cou­ple of mem­bers due to the merger, but other than that it has been “smooth sail­ing,” said Chislett, who is from Cavendish.

“Com­mu­ni­ties don’t al­ways get along, but when you’re in this ser­vice to­gether you put that aside,” said Jack­son.

Jack­son said there were talks of bring­ing other com­mu­ni­ties into the fold, but it has not en­tered into se­ri­ous dis­cus­sion.
