Loon Lake is one step closer to rebuilding its fire hall

TNRD secures fire hall land

The Thompson-Nicola Regional District has secured land for the new fire hall coming to Loon Lake.

The province granted the TNRD a 2.64 acre crown lease located roughly halfway along Loon Lake, within eight kilometres of the most populated area of the community.  

Loon Lake’s fire hall was lost during the 2017 Elephant Hill wildfire and the region has been working to construct a new one ever since.

Shortly after, in 2018, Fraserway RV, through the Adventurer Foundation, committed $275,000 towards the construction.

To support the fire department and the rebuild, the TNRD’s fire protection advisory committee has started a bottle drive fundraiser.

Empties can be dropped off at the Loon Lake transfer station.

“We are thrilled to be able to announce this land tenure for the new fire hall," Jason Tomlin, manager of fire protection services, says in a press release, “The Loon Lake volunteer firefighters have shown incredible commitment and tenacity in keeping the community safe while working through some challenging conditions.”

The district is expected to break ground in early 2021. 

The Loon Lake Fire Department is currently recruiting to add to its dedicated ranks, email for more information.
