Torrington Fire Receives New Tender



Torrington Fire Receives New Tender

Kneehill County, June 22, 2022 - The community of Torrington received a new Fire Tender to the Torrington Fire Hall. The residents who were able to attend the Ratepayer meeting, County Council and firefighter members were able to get a sneak peak at the latest addition to the fleet.

The new Tender has a high/low pressure pump and holds 13,600 litres of water. It is replacing the 2001 Tender that only held 4,000 litres. The new truck is a Tender/Engine combination unit with a fire pump that can provide 5,000 litres per minute of water to the fire, increasing the level of service to our communities.

Council has made apparatus replacements a priority in recent years with the purchase of 4 engines in 2020 to serve our area, a 2018 brush truck for Torrington, and this year, two Tenders have been purchased (Torrington and Three Hills). Kneehill County has been able to dedicate funds through good financial planning processes, implementing annual contributions to prepare for these purchases. The Tender is almost ready for delivery to its firefighter members, expected in July, along with the Three Hills Tender. -30-
