Name Change

The Bezanson Volunteer Fire Department Society has voted to undergo a name change however, no official name has been decided on yet.

The Bezanson Volunteer Fire Department Society has opted for this change due to a difference of visions between our society and fire operations. The decision to undergo a name change did not come light heartedly and was nearly unanimous among the members in good standing. We see this change as an opportunity for each side to continue to do their identifiable work with in our community, independently of each other. Currently we are working on the logistics of the separation, once that is complete we will be announcing the new name. We will continue to conduct our distinguished work as we have done in the past; that is in a major way supporting the Bezanson Volunteer Fire Department, maintaining and managing the community’s skating rink, and working towards the betterment of our exceptional community.

As such, the Bezanson Volunteer Fire Department Society will not be hosting a Firemen’s Ball this year. We look forward to continuing our notable work under a new name. We appreciate your understanding, kindhearted acceptance, and support of this new arrangement.

Our largest project to date was the construction of a $320,000 multi-phase, Outdoor Community Skating Rink. While construction has been completed, our Society always welcomes help in maintaining this facility!
