West Fraser donates life-saving equipment

Quesnel Fire Department was happy to receive the three life-saving pieces of equipment

A recent donation to the

Quesnel Fire Department

has given firefighters added

ability to help in emergency

situations and to help free

trapped motorists.

Local West Fraser Mills

donated a set of Jaws of

Life, a set of Pneumatic Air

Bags and a firefighting water


“This equipment will greatly

increase our capabilities to

help rescue people who could

be trapped in their vehicle or

under heavy equipmen,” City

of Quesnel fire Chief Sylvain

Gauthier said.

The set of pneumatic air

bags will enable firefighters to

save lives by rescuing victims

from underneath vehicles or

other heavy equipment.

This is an extremely useful

tool as it can be inserted into

narrow opening where most

other tools will not fit.

Members of the Quesnel

Fire Department were very

excited about the donation of

this equipment and are very

thankful to West Fraser Mills

for their generosity.

“We are pleased to make

this donation in recognition

of the support and outstanding

commitment the

Quesnel Fire Department

members have provided to

all local West Fraser mills

and to the community over

the years,” WestPine MDF
