ESTEVAN - Estevan Fire Rescue Service members responded to a couple of vehicle collisions and a commercial fire alarm last week.

The first call for service came on March 28 at about 8 a.m., when fire crews were dispatched to a two-vehicle accident on the west side of the city. No entrapment or injuries were reported. Firefighters assisted the city police with a fluid spill and debris cleanup.

Another two-vehicle collision occurred on the east side of the city on March 29. Estevan Fire Chief Rick Davies said it was a fairly minor accident with no entrapments or injuries, either. There were no fluid leaks, and both vehicles were off the main roads. Estevan police dealt with the situation, and the fire crews returned to the station.

Just after 2 a.m. on April 1, the EFRS was called to a commercial fire alarm that went off in the central part of Estevan.

"Crews responded and determined that it was pull station that was activated. There was actually no emergency occurring, so crews assisted with resetting the alarm," Davies said.

Over the weekend, about 10 members also went through wildland fire suppression training at the station.
