The RM truck is based in Odessa but can be dispatched anywhere in the RM as required. We have also added an Emergency Response vehicle which enables our First Responders to provide better service to the community. New members are always welcome!
The Fire Department is active through various community BBQ’s, blood donor clinics, fire extinuisher testing/purchase programs, and the purchase and maintenance of three AED’s for the community.
