Time to step up

Both Citizens on Patrol and West Boundary Road Rescue are looking for members - both offer a way to contribute to the community.

Are you looking for a way to give back to your community—a way to help and protect others in time of emergency? Why not consider joining either, or both, of two local groups that need new members at the moment?

Boundary Citizens on Patrol (COP) provides extra eyes for the local RCMP constables.COP in the Boundary began in 1991 when a group formed in Greenwood. The group meets on the second Wednesday of each month. The group conducts speed watch, range patrol and vehicle patrols through the communities of the West Boundary, making sure businesses are locked and secure.

More members are always welcome. If you want information about joining, contact Midway RCMP at 250-443-1470. Members must undergo a (free) criminal records check.

West Boundary Road Rescue (WBRR) is another group that is always looking for new members.When you are involved in an accident on the highway, it is a blessing to know that trained and equipped emergency responders are on their way to help. It could be ambulance or police—or, if someone were pinned in a vehicle, it would be the road rescue crew.

WBRR is based in Midway and serves a huge geographical area: from Eholt on the east, to Bridesville on the west and as far north as Carmi.

WBRR holds regular training sessions every two weeks. The service is funded through taxes levied on property owners in Area E, Midway and Greenwood.

For more information about WBRR contact Larry Bowen at 250-528-0349.
