ESTEVAN — On June 15, just after 3:30 p.m., the Estevan Fire Rescue Service was dispatched to a single-vehicle incident west of the city.

Crews responded and determined that a vehicle lost a piece of equipment it was hauling from a trailer, and it was blocking a roadway. Firefighters assisted with traffic control until the area was cleared.

Earlier last week, fire crews were dispatched to a commercial fire alarm in the southeast area of the city on June 12 at about 8:30 a.m. Crews investigated and determined there was an issue with the sprinkler system, which caused the alarm. Firefighters confirmed that there was no emergency occurring, worked with the maintenance staff and then returned to the station.

Later the same day, shortly after 4 p.m., crews were called to another commercial fire alarm in the northeast area. Investigation showed that the alarm was caused by maintenance being done at that location, and no emergency was occurring.

Firefighters responded to a residential fire alarm in northwest Estevan on June 13 at about 10:30 a.m. It was quickly determined that the alarm was due to cooking and crews confirmed that no emergency was occurring in this case.

On June 14 just after 3 p.m., firefighters were dispatched to a motor vehicle collision on the west side of the city. Crews responded and assisted at the scene.

A little while later on the same day, firefighters were buzzed to a downed power line in north-central Estevan. The crews responded and investigated that incident, confirmed no fire or emergency was occurring and remained on scene to secure the area until SaskPower arrived to perform repairs.

Later that evening, the EFRS also partook in the SMILE Services Estevan parade that opened the Energy City Ex., and also celebrated the 2024 Estevan Comprehensive School graduates.
