Agreement with Lheidli - fire service for Shelley

The Lheidli T'enneh and the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George signed an agreement in April 2015 under which the Regional District provides fire protection services to the south side of the Lheidli T'enneh lands adjacent to Shelley. The fire protection services are be provided through the Shell-Glen Volunteer Fire/Rescue.

It is a fee-for-service agreement that spans five years. The agreement provides for fire protection services for structural fires and fires threatening structures on the reserve lands as well as the provision of emergency medical first responder services. Additionally, it provides an opportunity for members of the Lheidli T'enneh to become members of the Shell-Glen volunteer fire/rescue department.

The Shell-Glen Volunteer Fire/Rescue was established in 1991 and provides fire protection to the Shelley town site and surrounding area.
