Estevan fire crews dealt with an accident and fire alarms

The Estevan Fire Rescue Service (EFRS) members were out in the community on several occasions this week.

Monday afternoon crews were dispatched to a two-vehicle collision in the central are of the city. Estevan Deputy Fire Chief Rick Davies said the accident was minor in nature. No injuries occurred as a result.

Crews arrived on scene to isolate the vehicles, and then returned to the station.

The next call for service came in Tuesday just after 8 a.m. Firefighters were dispatched to a commercial fire alarm going off in the northeast part of Estevan. The call was quickly updated, and it was deemed to be a false alarm so crews were stood down.

Later that same day, another commercial fire alarm went off. This time the potential emergency was occurring on the west side of the city. It turned out quickly that indeed there was no emergency and the alarm was false. Crews were stood down and returned to the station.

Another alarm went off Thursday morning at about 10 a.m. The fire department was called to a commercial building on the east end of Estevan. But in a matter of a few minutes it was confirmed that the alarm was false, and crews were stood down.
