The Bonnyville Regional Fire Authority (BRFA) is committed to keeping our communities safe and has responded to several calls over the week.

Dan Heney is the Regional Deputy Chief for the BRFA.

“On Monday, September 20, Station 7 Fort Kent and Station 8 Ardmore responded at 6:30 p.m. to a fire at 50st and Highway 28 in Ardmore,” Deputy Chief Heney told Lakeland Connect. “No significant losses.”
