A Distinct Lack Of Enthusiasm For Regional Fire Department Idea

The volunteer fire department in Grand Bay-Westfield is "exemplary" and the town is not ready to take on a fulltime fire department. 

That's the reaction of Mayor Grace Losier to the idea being floated of a regional fire department that would provide coverage for the Saint John area.

Losier says the town would listen to any proposal that's made but is leaning to sticking with the status quo.

There are 49 volunteer firefighters in Grand Bay-Westfield.
