Fire Department


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 and currently has 14 active members.  The Reynolds Fire Department protects our community from the ravages of fire.  Although the majority are vehicle incidents the Municipality is able to recover some 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 in 2019.  The Fire Chief, Don McDougall, will be pleased to respond to questions about the department or give you a tour, call and leave a message at 204-392-8745 or at the firehall 204-426-2265, Don can also be reached at .
