A few more days was given for anyone interested in joining the La Broquerie Fire Department.

Fire Chief Alain Nadeau says the hiring notification was only put “in 'notices' and not into 'hirings'” and so the deadline was extended by a week.

Nadeau is expecting to get a good response. He says the La Broquerie Fire Department does not seem to have the same recruitment challenges as most other rural departments.

He doesn’t know why they seem to get a lot of interest, but he’s not questioning it.

“I’m not sure what it is, we’re just lucky that way,” Nadeau says.

The department currently has 28 members and the goal is to hire two to five recruits. Applications must be submitted by November 5th, 2021.
