SALMON RIVER – The Salmon River and District Volunteer Fire Brigade is one of 19 rural volunteer departments in Northern Nova Scotia and Cape Breton to receive a financial boost.

The brigade, which was the only one in Colchester County to receive the money, will receive $2,750 through a draw by Seaside Wireless Communications in Sydney. The company is donating $2,000, with the remaining $750 coming from Nova Scotia Power.

The winners were selected by random draw from departments who applied to participate.
