Council wishes to remind all residents that although South Lake does have a Firefighting and Emergency Response Service agreement with the City of Moose Jaw, it is the individual property owners responsibility to carry firefighting insurance for their property and contents.
In the event that a fire truck is called to your property, regardless of who calls for help, the cost of the response will be billed to the property owner. For example, Moose Jaw fire Department response fees for 2007 for one engine carrying and four firefighters, range from $801.12 for a one hour response, to $2051.20 for a five hour response.
Please ensure that your insurance carries a rider to cover these costs. Firefighting insurance is very reasonable (please consult your personal insurance provider for exact amounts).
