The Morinville Fire Department (MFD) received a $5000 grant towards MFD’s training department Friday morning.

The MFD says the grant will support furthering Officer training with advances in a new technology format.

“It’s an interactive, computer-based scenario model that complements the traditional theory portion of our training,” Said Morinville Fire Chief Brad Boddez. “The officers will be working on laptops, computers, iPads. It’s a great program. It’s called Blue Card.”

The Town says the grant funding will bring the Morinville Fire Department, and its officers in particular, to a higher training standard, in turn, will providing better service to the community.
