Pembina-Manitou Fire Dept. Takes Delivery of New SCBA’s Purchased Through Provincial Fire Protection Grant
Earlier this year, the recipients of the Manitoba Government’s one-time Fire Protection Grant were announced, with the Pembina-Manitou Fire Department receiving $108,606.40 to be used for the purchase of 10 new self contained breathing apparatus (SCBA’s), as well as 20 high pressure (4,500 psi) air cylinders. This week, the department took delivery of the new MSA brand units, purchased through ABC Fire & Safety of Winnipeg. A feature of note is that two of the 10 scba’s are also equipped with built in thermal imaging cameras, another tool to enhance the safety and fire fighting efforts of the volunteer firefighters. Ian Birchall of ABC Fire & Safety Sales Rep and Kent Cross of MSA Territory Sales Manager delivered them to the department.
