County Fire crews are taking the opportunity to enter its award-winning float in a number of local parades to the delight of attendees.
On Saturday, June 29, Lac Ste. Anne County Fire Services’ Cherhill crew participated in the Cherhill Fun Days parade with its amazing wildland-themed float created by the crews at Stations 4 and 7. One side of the float was “Mostly” FireSmart-related — the other not so much. After the parade there was an open house at the fire station where attendees had a meet-and-greet with the Cherhill and Sangudo crews. Fire Services representatives barbecued hotdogs and gave away many door prizes that were graciously donated by local business from around the Cherhill and Sangudo Communities.
On August 3, the float was featured in the Alberta Beach Poly Days Parade where Lac Ste. Anne County Fire Services units and crews from East Station, Station 5, Station 3 and Station 7 were in attendance. The float won first place ribbon at this parade!
On August 10, Fire Services took the float to the Mayerthorpe Parade with the Wildland unit stationed out of Cherhill Station 7 where they met up with the Mayerthorpe Station 6 crew. Once again, this fabulous float took the first place ribbon.
