Two Members Injured At Wednesday Wildland Fire
May 3, 2018
Attention all members:
We had a serious wildland fire last night where two of our members were taken to hospital. Their injuries were serious but not life threatening.
I have been in contact with the officer this morning and he has advised he is shaken up but recovering.
He believed he was not going to make it as the grass fire engulfed his crew’s position. They were able to escape the fire but they were injured. He said he has never seen fire move that quickly.
Winnipeg has had one of its driest springs on record and with no rain, high winds and sun forecast for the next two weeks.
We ask all citizens to follow the burning bans issued by the fire Department.
Ed Wiebe To Model Memorial Silhouette
May 1, 2018
What a great day for all Firefighters as we do the photo shoot for the image the Manitoba Fallen Firefighter Memorial.
The model for this memorial image is Winnipeg Firefighter Ed Wiebe.
Ed was badly burned in the Gabrielle Roy Tragedy where we lost Fire Captains Harold Lessard and Tom Nichols.
Brother Wiebe is doing this in the memory of our two fallen Captains and all Firefighters injured. RIP Brothers/Never forgotten.
