Westminster lends aid during wildland fire
(Mar 29, 2012)
The Westminster Fire Department has deployed several firefighters to help fight the Lower North Fork Fire. Members of the Wildland Team and the Urban Search and Rescue team were called to assist.
Firefighters are working 14-hour days and are coordinating with several different agencies to combat this tragic fire.
Though the pay for the firefighters is eventually covered by federal funds, the entire department works together to staff the Westminster stations adequately while team members help with the emergency.
