Mounties Won't Attend Minor Crash Scenes

Good News For Timmy's?

It is reported in the News Bulletin that firefighters will soon be attending minor fender benders leaving the Mounties free for more important duties.

The job of traffic control and assisting drivers exchange documents can be handled just as well by firefighters, who attend 99% of all accidents anyway.

The idea came from Surrey where firefighters have been managing accident scenes for several years now.

Since firefighters have more 'standby' time now it makes more sense for them to handle accidents which don't require special investigation.

Police and fire officials hope to complete training to start the new program this fall.
