stories of the great southwest_ep1

In this entry in the Stories from Saskatchewan’s Great Southwest series, we focus on one of the longest lasting aspects of the city of Swift Current: The Fire Department.

Since its inception as a volunteer brigade in 1898, the Fire Department has been keeping the homes and citizens of Swift Current safe. While it has seen changes and evolved through its long history, the department has made it through adversity to be a vital and respected leader in the community.
