This was the post generating plenty of reaction over the weekend. Warman Fire Rescue's post on Facebook praised the efforts of Volunteer and Career Firefighters across Saskatchewan. The post prompted hundreds of comments and thousands of characters worth of praise and appreciation for their efforts. Pictured with the post a photo with the caption, "We don't stop when we're tired, we stop when we're done." Clearly, this quote captures the spirit and sacrifice of all Firefighting personnel and the effort put forth to safeguard life, property and community. This past week may have served as an opportunity to recognize the performance and tireless training of Firefighters across our province. Stay strong Brothers and Sisters, we are grateful that you carry this motto close to your heart and practice it to its end!
Serious fires raged near urban communities of Biggar, Dalmany and Warman dominated the news since Easter.
