News Why the Timmins Police Service flag is flying at Timmins Fire Dept. headquarters SHARE ON: Bob McIntyre, staff Tuesday, Oct. 13th, 2020 When you drive by the main Timmins fire hall on Cedar St. S. this week, you’ll notice the Timmins Police Service flag flying overhead. It’s the result of a good-natured Thanksgiving food drive between the two services. They collected a total of about 500 pounds of food for the Timmins Food Bank. Police collected more than half, so Timmins Fire has to fly the flag for a week. Deputy Fire Chief Ellard Beaven says it was a fun competition that also solved the problem of having a food drive during the pandemic. And he says no one is a loser in this type of competition.
