Fire Protection Area Expansion
The TNRD is considering expanding the Pritchard Volunteer Fire Department (PVFD) service area to include the Monte Creek, LaFarge West and LaFarge Rivershore regions in Electoral Areas “L” and “P”. The Monte Creek portion of this new service area runs along the south side of the South Thompson River from the boundary of the PVFD’s existing fire service area to the boundary with Kamloops. It extends south on Highway 97 to the intersection with Barnhartvale Road and on Barnhartvale Road to a point 1.5 kilometres west of the intersection with Robbins Range Road.
At its regular meeting of April 22, 2021, the TNRD Board of Directors received the Pritchard Volunteer Fire Department Fire Protection Area Expansion final report from Dave Mitchell & Associates Ltd. and authorized staff to consult with residents to determine if there is interest in the creation of a fire protection service area at Monte Creek, with plans to complete the consultation process in six months (late 2021).
