    Angry Another Case Of Equipment Theft!!!

    Tahsis is a very small community on the west coast of Vancouver Island and a loss like this will be very ugly. This sort of thing at any time is bad. The fact that these guys were on their way to the interior of BC to help fight the "big fires". This is just plain ignortant on the part of the person(s) responsible. I hope that the gear is recovered, and those responsible held accountable.... I think they are looking for cleanup crews in the Kamloops area.....

    Visiting firefighters' truck, gear stolen

    canada.com Wednesday, August 06, 2003

    Some members of the Red Devils Fire Crew, from Tahsis, in front of the Duncan motel where their truck and gear were stolen.

    A special firefighting team from Tahsis that is on standby in Duncan to fight wildfires had their truck and all their gear stolen Tuesday night from the motel where they are staying.

    The Red Devils Fire Crew didn't hear the thieves take the vehicle, even though the rented white Ford F-350 Diesel was taken from its parking space right outside their door.

    The fire crew was on 20-minute standby for any forest fires on Vancouver Island.

    The Ministry of Forests has supplied the Red Devils with enough borrowed gear to do their job, but without their specialized equipment, the task is much harder.

    Still, fire crew member Derrick Kasper averred, "We'll go in our bare feet if we have to."

    The team figures they've lost about $7,000 worth of equipment. They will be keeping their replacement gear locked in their hotel room to prevent further losses.

    Police say it isn't clear whether the Devils' truck was intentionally targeted.
