The Joussard Fire District is in desperate need of more firefighters.

“We especially need members in the Joussard Fire District,” Big Lakes County fire chief John McDermott says.

“Becoming a member of the fire service in your community is a great way to get involved, in addition to building lifelong skills and relationships.

Currently, the district has about three firefighters, says fire- fighter Tahria Sawka.

A 2018 Ford F550 fire rescue truck arrived in June and features multiple capabilities.

A four-wheel drive on super-single tires, the truck has a capacity hold 400 gallons of water.

“It is designed to serve a dual-purpose apparatus and as a light rescue for motor vehicle collisions,” McDermott says.

The fire department holds practices and training sessions the first and third Monday of the month from 7-9 p.m.

For more information on becoming a fire- fighter, please phone McDermott at [780] 776-0007.
