The RM of Victoria's bridge over highway 34 will soon be closed for repairs, and part of that RM is situated north of the bridge. Municipality of North-Norfolk Mayor Neil Christoffersen says Victoria needs some help from his municipality.
"The indication from MIT is that the bridge will be closed from the 17th to the 28th for repairs," says Christoffersen. "So, during that period of time if there is an emegerency the Victoria fire department will have trouble accessing it. We'll look after the fire protection services up to the river during that period of time."
He adds they met with Victoria's reeve Harold Purkess, his council and fire chiefs from both municipalities and discussed any issues they should be aware of. The chiefs will be in constant communication through a special 911 line that was set up during that period.
