Gillies Volunteer Fire Association

The Gillies Volunteer Fire Association received $5,000 from TbayTel For Good.

The Gillies Volunteer Fire Association wants to build a live fire training facility using sea-cans. Having a local facility will deliver high quality training experiences without having to send firefighters to cost-prohibitive and time-consuming courses. Mutual aid partners departments will also benefit by training together to improve firefighting preparedness. 

Well Done!
