AEDs placed in the Bezanson Community

The Bezanson Volunteer Fire Department Society has undertaken an initiative to install Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) in local community facilities. Recently, the BVFD Society donated and installed AEDs at the Community Hall, Legion Hut and Senior’s Center. After calling 911, these AEDs can be used by the public in the event of a cardiac emergency. AEDs are simple-to-use devices that really do save lives!

This project  has been made possible with the generous support of donors through fundraising and grant applications. We are pleased to receive a donation from the Regional EMS Foundation for two AEDs – thank you! We are also very grateful for the support of the Bezanson Ag Society, West Smoky Legion #244, and the Bezanson Senior’s Center for allowing us to place the AEDs within their facilities.

If you are interested in supporting this project, please contact us. Together, we are a heart-safe community!

Busy Spring for BVFD Society

It has been a very busy spring for Bezanson Volunteer Fire Department Society!

We were pleased to host the Grand Opening of the skating rink in February! This multi-year project for which we fundraised just over $320,000, saw a lot of use this winter! We even found ourselves purchasing a Zamboni to keep up with the ice maintenance. The generosity and support from the community for this project has truly been remarkable – thank you!

We received a donation of $3000 from Pembina Pipelines and our society matched the funds to purchase a pedal cutter (specialized vehicle extrication tool).

We were also happy to purchase and donate a BBQ for the school to use.

In March, our Society also held our Strategic Planning Session which we try to do every 3-4 years. This streamlines our meetings and helps our team focus on priorities for the next several years. The society committed to continuing to support community initiatives and pay for some specialized training and equipment if there is a need.

In April, we hosted our 11th Annual Firemen’s Ball to a sold-out crowd of 240 people. It was a great evening of eating, dancing, and visiting and we are so grateful for the community’s support every year.

We also had our casino in April, and will be selling tickets with the Ag Society at Rotary’s Cash and Camping lottery this June.
