Millet fire department looking for defunct cars

If you have an old vehicle and you’re not sure what to do with it, you should donate it to the Millet Fire Department.

If you have an old car, truck, van or other vehicle that’s defunct and you’re not sure what to do with it, you should donate it to the Millet Fire Department.

The Millet Fire Department is looking for old vehicles to use for training purposes, specifically. Most people don’t realize that fire departments don’t spend all of their time fighting fires anymore. They spend a lot of their time providing emergency services at motor vehicle collisions and the Millet department has an important upcoming training course that requires at least six old vehicles, and it doesn’t matter what kind of vehicles they are.

Such collisions involve rescuing people trapped in wrecked vehicles. Rescuing people from such situations is specialized work, requiring care, attention and skill that can’t come from sitting in a classroom alone. It has to be developed from hands-on training.

The training course is to take place in October, so the department would like to arrange to pick up the cars soon. Anyone who can help out the fire department should call 780-984-8511 and ask for Greg.
