The fire department in Quesnel has updated equipment following a donation.
Local West Fraser Mills donated water monitors, air bags and the Jaws of Life.
Fire Chief Sylvain Gauthier says it was a nice surprise to receive the donation.
He says the new Jaws of Life will replace their current set that’s over 40-years-old.
He says the new gear will help monitor their water resources during fire calls and lift heavy items off of victims.
Local West Fraser Mills says they’re happy to donate to the fire department that’s been protecting them and the community over the years.
Gauthier says they looking forward to making their response to calls more efficient with their new tools.
