Kimberley Fire Department Welcomes New Fire Truck


The City of Kimberley is pleased to announce the acquisition of a state-of-the-art fire truck, reinforcing our commitment to safeguarding the community and ensuring the safety of our residents. The replacement was mandatory due to age of previous equipment and requirements in Fire Insurance Grading.

Built in Winnipeg, MB, the new Fire Engine #1 represents a significant step forward in our ongoing efforts to provide efficient emergency response services and equipment. The new truck boasts the latest technology and capabilities and will help our dedicated firefighters respond to emergencies more effectively. Engine #3 will be transitioned into a 2nd line of duty apparatus.

"The safety and well-being of our residents have always been a top priority for the Kimberley Fire Department,” said Fire Chief Will Booth.  “This modern fire truck is an investment in our community's safety and we look forward to using it to support Kimberley for years to come."

The new truck will enter service immediately. Residents that see the truck around town, when not responding to emergency, are encouraged to ask fire crews for a tour.
