Fire Fighters exhibit at the museum

In celebration of 100 years of service to the Sooke area

he Sooke Fire Fighters exhibit at the Sooke Museum was attended by friends and family, current and former fighters, and Sooke Mayor Wendal Milne and Councillor Kerrie Reay. Top, this was Sooke’s first official fire truck, manned by four fighters in the front to provide the go-force, and two in the back to serve as the brakes. It was donated to the Sooke fire fighters in 1913, and thus serves as the first official time marker. This, along with an inside display on the second floor, can be seen at the Sooke Museum until November 10, 2013.
