Winfield & District Fire Department fire hall upgraded

Wetaskiwin County says upgrades part of long-term vision

A County of Wetaskiwin fire hall is looking pretty sharp after recent renovations and upgrades.

The Winfield &District Fire Department fire hall has recently been upgraded with a 20’ x 60’ wash bay addition, the lighting was replaced with LED lighting, and the floor and floor drain systems were replaced.

The four bay fire hall was in need of floor repairs and was at full capacity. Through strategic planning, input was gathered from the community, Winfield &District Fire Department Society, the Winfield Fire Department and the County of Wetaskiwin and the Five Year Fire Plan created. The need for the upgrades was identified in the plan.

With the assistance of Collin Roggeveen, of RPM Consulting, the final planning for the project took place last year and the Request for Proposals resulted in Read Contracting Ltd. awarded the project for the cost of $382,614.

Reeve Kathy Rooyakkers advises, “This is another great example of the implementation of the long-term vision and planning for fire services. Members of the fire department and the public will benefit from these upgrades with department members having the space required to operate more efficiently which allows them to continue to provide a high level of fire services and emergency response to our residents”.

If you have any questions regarding fire services throughout the County of Wetaskiwin please contact Director of Emergency Services Mike Zajac at 780-361-6240.
