WHEREAS investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP) funding exists to help municipalities build strong, dynamic, and inclusive communities as well as ensuring Canadian families have access to modern, reliable services that improve their quality of life.

WHEREAS growing communities put increased demands on local fire departments who then require significant capital investments to ensure the safety of the growing community.

WHEREAS increased standards for construction and capital costs have drastically inflated the costs of new fire halls.

BE IT RESOLVED that SARM lobby the federal government to add fire halls to any and all future infrastructure fund programs.
