New M.D. Fire Truck
Ready to Serve Rural Area

Provost volunteer firefighters got a good look at their new fire truck supplied by the Municipal District of Provost. The truck, shown here demonstrating its three front nozzles is designed to quickly put out stubble, grass, ditch and bush fires in the country (see also PN April 8). The new truck arrived late Thursday afternoon, April 16. Administrator for the M.D. Provost No. 52, Tyler Lawrason told The News that the unit cost $537,000 and noted that council had talked “extensively” about the need for extra water carrying capacity. Planning to obtain a new truck began in August 2013 with a tender awarded on December 12, 2013. This truck holds 5,000 U.S. gallons of water (4,163 Canadian or Imperial gallons). ©Provost News Photo.

This photo shows some people who were at a vendor open house organized by SkyFlo Consulting — hired to construct an $80 million wind farm project northeast of town. The crowd a short while later sat down to hear about building plans and possible business opportunities from SkyFlo Consulting spokesman Dave Willms. The meeting was held on Friday afternoon, April 17 with an overview of the project beginning just after 6 p.m. in the Alberta Room at the Provost Recreation and Culture Centre. The day before, BluEarth Renewables Inc. of Calgary representing its subsidiary 1646658 Alberta Ltd. held an open house in the same place to update people about its proposed venture which will see 17 turbines spinning to generate 29.2 MW of electricity.
