Ready for worse: fire crews fill sandbags in McBride

At the request of the Regional District of Fraser Fort George, Members of BC Wildfire Services filled approximately 2500 sandbags in McBride on Thursday June 25, 2020. “This isn’t a normal situation,” said RDFFG Manager of External Relations, Renee McCloskey. “We were fortunate that they were available to help.” LDM delivered the sand to the parking lot between the Recreation Centre and the Community Hall. The filled sandbags are available for anyone who needs the added protection against rising floodwaters./ANDREA ARNOLD
