June 18, 2019
In the early morning hours of Sunday, June 16, 2019, many dedicated volunteer firefighters answered the call to fight a fire at Region of Queens Municipality’s landfill site. Their prompt response, which knocked the fire down very quickly, is greatly appreciated.
A special thank you to the Greenfield and District Volunteer Fire Department, who were first on the scene and the lead department, with support on the scene and as mutual aid from all Queens County fire departments, as well as from Lunenburg, Annapolis, and Shelburne Counties.
In all, 14 volunteer fire departments responded to the landfill fire, or served as standby at fire stations involved in the firefighting efforts. In addition to the Greenfield and District Volunteer Fire Department, crews responded from Liverpool Fire Fighters Association, Port Medway Fire Department, Mill Village and District Fire Department, North Queens Fire Association, Annapolis Royal Fire Department, New Germany Fire Department, Bridgewater Fire Department, Dayspring and District Fire Department, Hebbville Fire Department, Lunenburg and District Fire Department, Tri County Volunteer Fire Department, Hemford District Fire Department and Sable River Volunteer Fire Department.
Region of Queens Municipality’s Council, staff and residents appreciate the work and specialized training of these community volunteers from Queens and our neighbours as well. Thank you very much for all you do to ensure safe communities.
David Dagley, Mayor
