Rural Nova Scotia Fire Department Back Thanks to Other Fire Departments

The fire department in Shinimicas, Cumberland County is back thanks to other fire departments around Nova Scotia, reports Yahoo News.

The department’s building was deemed a total loss after a fire ripped through it last week. The fire that started in the engine of a fire truck damaged all of the department’s fire equipment, including all three fire trucks.

But the fire department in nearby Tidnish Bridge lent them a 28-year-old fire truck and it was pressed into service right away.

Loaner trucks are coming in from departments in Cape Breton, Mahone Bay and Hants County. Other gear is being offered up and some of it is actually being turned down.
