Residents in and around Kaslo can sleep a little easier following the grand opening Saturday of the new emergency services building.
The facility, located next to the arena on the south side of the village, is home to the fire department, search and rescue and emergency social services.
“This is a great day. I’ve been waiting for this for 10 years,” Area D Director Andy Shadrack told the large crowd of firefighters, dignitaries, and citizens.
“It’s a wonderful facility for our needs,” said Kaslo fire chief Douglas Yee.
