District of Barriere Mayor Virginia Smith and Chief Nathan Matthew sign a Barriere/Simpcw Mutual Aid Agreement for Fire Protection between the two communities on Dec. 14 at Chu Chua.

The previous agreement had expired, so starting in 2014 the two communities joined in looking at what a new agreement would include.

Their discussions included: number of volunteers, existing equipment, insurance requirements, fire protection areas and levels of training and minimum training standards set out in the new BC Fire Service Playbook.

As a result of these talks it was agreed that both departments are now at a place where they can offer support to one another on an as needed basis, benefiting both communities.
