The Municipal Act provides that every municipality must provide fire protection services within its boundaries.
The Rural Municipality of Reynolds Fire Department – The Reynolds Fire Department in Prawda is responsible for fire protection for the areas of Spruce Siding, Medika, Hadashville, Prawda, McMunn and East Braintree. The Reynolds Fire Department protects our community from the ravages of fire. Fire Chief Tom Nixon and his team of fourteen fire fighters responded to 59 incidents in 2009. Although the majority are vehicle incidents the Municipality is able to recover the response costs from Manitoba Public Insurance. The Fire Department holds scheduled practices and continually upgrades and trains the team. Also, a new (used) fire truck was purchased this year. Tom Nixon would be pleased to respond to questions about the department or give you a tour, call and leave a message at 426-2266 or 1-204-479-3198.
