Bailey Homes was happy to provide the Portage la Prairie Fire Department a place to do some search and rescue training this week. We gave them access to a couple of our houses at different stages of construction.
This gave them a chance to do search and rescue training in a home before it was drywalled and finished, and another at the drywall stage making it more realistic for them in preparing for the real thing. We welcome them to do this type of training at our houses any time.
Congratulations to Phil Carpenter on his retirement after 44 years of service, and to Brad Bailey who will take over as the new Fire Chief May 2.
