The Kindersley Volunteer Fire Department has members who come from near and far.
Mitch Hope, who grew up in Kindersley, has been part of the team since 2003. “I joined when I was 16. There were a few hoops to jump through to do that; there’s stipulations on what you can and can’t do.”
It may seem uncommon for a 16-year-old to volunteer to be a firefighter, but at the time Mitch was already familiar with what the position involved because his father, Ron Hope, is a long-time volunteer firefighter.This content is for members only.
