Wawa Council Approves Air Pack Purchase For Fire Department

Wawa Municipal Council has approved plans to replace the Fire Department's self-contained breathing apparatus units.

The request was made by Fire Chief Sabourin, who explains the department was looking to replace its fourteen "air packs", due to age.

Sabourin says the equipment can't be retrofitted to meet current standards, so complete replacements are needed.

While it has been approved now, the purchase will be included in next year's capital budget.
