Parry Sound will be donating an ambulance to the Britt Fire Department. After a fire last week destroyed the ambulance used in the Britt area, the Town of Parry Sound needed to act quickly to ensure the proper coverage in that area. Town of Parry Sound Director of Emergency Services Dave Thompson explained to council that the Britt and Area Fire Department needs an ambulance as they are key component in the tiered response of the entire district.
Thompson explains that Parry Sound is due for new ambulances in 2015 so moving one a couple months early won’t hurt.
Council approved the decision and Thompson says an ambulance is already prepped to be shipped to Britt and the transfer will happen very quickly to ensure response across the district is reliable.
