North Whiteshell Fire Department – Important Message to North Whiteshell Cottage Owners

Posted on: May 29, 2018  |  

ATTENTION: ALL NORTH WHITESHELL COTTAGE OWNERS AND BUSINESSES

SUBJECT: NORTH WHITESHELL FIRE DEPARTMENT

Further to the story that ran in the December 2017 edition of the Whiteshell Echo, we point out that this project is being driven by a committee of six North Whiteshell cottage owners who are also members of the Whiteshell Cottagers Association. Please note that ongoing work on this project is being done under the North Whiteshell Fire Department banner, not that of the WCA.

As you are already aware our committee has been gathering information and exploring options to deliver a much higher level of fire protection to the North Whiteshell. Before we move forward we need your input. To facilitate this we have engaged the services of Probe Research, a renowned Winnipeg based company who will conduct an independent survey. Your package will include background information on the current fire/911 process allowing you to provide informed answers.

This summer you will receive either an email or a letter asking you to complete the survey. Completing it by email is the fastest, most efficient of the two options. If you have not given us your email address please call Lee Hurton at 204-487-0556 or email her at wca@whiteshellcottagers.com.  Should you not want to participate in this survey, please immediately call Lee and we will remove your name from our distribution list.

This is an extremely important matter. We want your thoughts and the survey gives you the opportunity to have your voice heard. Your cooperation in completing and returning it promptly to Probe Research will be very much appreciated. Depending on the distribution date of the survey, the results will be published in either the August or October edition of the Echo.

Gary Kennedy Chair – North Whiteshell Fire Dept Committee.
