14 Firemen Take in Training
The Provost fire department hosted 14 firemen from five communities on Saturday and Sunday when part of a course in battling liquified gas fires was held in town.
The May 5 and 6 sessions ran from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Local fire chief Barry Johnstone said there was one instructor and four fire safety volunteers involved with the course as well.

Firemen were taught how to control and extinguish a fire fed by propane at the training centre (see photos this paper). A jet of water from a high pressure hose was used to spread the flames so that a valve feeding the liquified gas could be manually shut off.

Those firemen taking the course were from Vegreville, Killam, Daysland and Forestburg who stayed overnight on Saturday as well as volunteer firemen from Edgerton.
A region set up to provide a variety of fire fighting training includes firefighters from within a boundary roughly from Castor and Coronation to Vegreville and from the Saskatchewan border to Hay Lakes.

The 14 people who took the first part of the course will be back again this weekend to finish practical exercises and to write an exam.
