Beaverly firefighters run Saturday
Firefighters of Beaverly Fire/Rescue Department will be on the run this Saturday.
The firefighters will be participating in a special relay event that runs along Highway 16 West from their western service area boundary at Bednesti Lake to the fire/rescue department’s eastern service area boundary at East Beaverly Road.
Chief Bruce Perrin says the event will serve a number of purposes. “We are looking to create more awareness for the department which will help our recruitment efforts, and more importantly we want to promote health and wellness for our members and the community,” said Perrin, in a press release.
The route will be well marked on Saturday, but motorists travelling along that stretch of the highway are advised to take extra precaution to ensure everyone’s safety.
The Beaverly Fire/Rescue Department was established in 1983. Rescue services are provided from Bednesti to the city boundary, and fire protection services are provided to the community of Beaverly and surrounding area. There are currently 28 members in the department.
