Letter: Perhaps permanent digs needed for wildland firefighters

Editor:

As we enjoy the clear skies and freedom from fire anxiety, it is time to not only thank our firefighters, but reflect on how we can make their jobs easier in the future.

Many of us saw the small tents in the dusty field of the fire camp on the former Parkcrest school grounds this past summer. What must it have been like after exhausting long days in the field to return to that camp for rest and recovery?

Perhaps it is time to build a more permanent facility with showers, sleeping quarters and relaxation areas to support firefighters deployed out of the Kamloops Fire Centre?

I am sure the people of this city would get behind such a move to provide support for our hardworking and essential wildland firefighters.
