UPDATE: Waverley West Fire Hall – Fire Prevention Week
A firehall for Southwest Winnipeg is funded and being constructed in the new neighbourhood of Bison Run – in the north west corner of Bison Run – off the soon to be constructed first phase of Bison Drive extension:
2022: Servicing the site /pipes/sewer/road work occurs, along with firehall design
Current Fire & Paramedic Services for Southwest Winnipeg are provided primarily from Stations 22 (1567 Waverley Street) and 23 (880 Dalhousie Drive). Every year I request a statistical breakdown of the number and types of calls these two stations respond to. See 2018-2020 Statistical Breakdown. Its important to note that over three years:
- 2% of the calls were fire related
- 64%+ were first responder related (which include first responders attending motor vehicle accidents)
- 34%+ other – not fire related
If you do have a fire – please learn & know how to get your family out safely. Winnipeg Fire & Paramedics have put together excellent information.
Take your kids to Station 23 (880 Dalhousie) to the Open House – Saturday October 9th, from noon to 4 p.m. Event will be held outdoors.
Check your smoke detectors and please~ take the time to learn how to protect your home and family from fire.
Thank you to our first responders!
