Morinville Lions Club President Francis Fryters presented an $800 cheque to the Morinville Fire Chief Brad Boddez at the Don Found Fire Station Thursday afternoon.
Boddez said this was their first donation to the Alberta Fire and Injury Reduction Safety Trailer (AFIRST), a partnership project between the Office of the Fire Commissioner and the Morinville Firefighters Foundation. The concept at this point is a mobile educational trailer that focuses on fire safety, bike safety, and injury reduction at home, work and play. The AFIRST is targeted to be available to book for use in the community and the schools.
The money donated Oct. 9 by the Lions Club was raised at their Sept. 20 Roast of former Fire Chief Ron Cust.
