The Timmins Fire Department will be donating some of its old equipment to a nearby department.
The Mattagami Volunteer Department near Gogama will be getting 12 self-contained┬ábreathing apparatuses from Timmins to upgrade and raise the department’s safety standards.
Back in 2016, the local department bought 70 new units and put the old ones in storage.
Timmins City Council has approved giving the nearby department this boost to help keep everyone safe.
