County Signs Mutual Aid Agreement with Onoway

Lac Ste. Anne County Council today signed a fire services mutual aid agreement with the Town of Onoway. This agreement is designed to strengthen the collaborative potential between Lac Ste. Anne County Fire Services and Onoway Regional Fire Rescue, with the overarching objective of better servicing and safeguarding the community at large.

“We always look for ways in which we can help our municipal neighbours and benefit from their resources in kind,” noted Lac Ste. Anne County Mayor Bill Hegy. “That said, intermunicipal collaboration can often be complex and problematic, as was the case between our two groups. However, thanks to the perseverance, cooperation and respect of both parties, we have achieved our goal. This agreement represents a new opportunity for both communities to embark upon a new and mutually beneficial relationship.”

Today’s agreement with the Town of Onoway marks Lac Ste. Anne County’s ninth such mutual fire services agreement. These guiding documents are aimed at better enabling municipalities to distribute fire resources in a way that meets the service demands for a wider segment of the region. Earlier this year, the County marked a significant milestone in intermunicipal fire services collaboration with the signing of an historic mutual aid agreement with the Alexis Nakota Sioux First Nation of Treaty 6.

“The signing of this mutual aid agreement marks the end of the issue of fire services collaboration between the County and Onoway as far as I’m concerned,” continued Mayor Hegy. “I look forward to refocusing Council’s efforts on other initiatives.”
