Roof top campaign raises $16K for Muscular Dystrophy
The Medicine Hat Firefighters fifth annual roof top campout came to a successful conclusion on Sunday with over $16,000 raised for Muscular Dystrophy. Kalon Ternes has spent the last several months organizing the campout. He was pleased that the total exceeded the stated goal of $10,000 by such a wide margin. He was not surprised by the generosity of Hatters.

“This is our one major fundraising function of the year so we push really hard,” said Ternes. “We have such great support in the city. Since 1954 Medicine Hat alone has raised over $280,000 for Muscular Dystrophy.”

Tim Chan and Tyler Hodges were the two firefighters who agreed to campout on the roof of Fire Station #1 for the weekend. Chan said the support he and Hodges received from Hatters made it all worthwhile.

“It’s a good cause,” said Chan. “By doing this we could create awareness and raise a lot of money. It’s really nice to see all the support. We got a lot of honks from people going by and that boosts our morale.”

Tyler Hodges said while it was a little cold on Friday night, it was an otherwise pretty good weekend weather-wise to be camping-out.

“I wanted to help out,” said Hodges. “Friday night was pretty cold but last night wasn’t bad. It was worth it. Everybody in the city likes the firefighters and we do our best to support the city, and do what we can to create awareness. People like us and we like being there for them.”

To show their support for people with neuromuscular disorders, Medicine Hat Fire Fighters are organizing their 5th annual Rooftop Campout to raise awareness and funds to help 'make muscles move'. A Rooftop Campout is a fundraising event where local Fire Fighters camp on the roof of a building, enduring below freezing temperatures, inclement weather, and whatever else nature throws their way, and collect donations from the public to support Muscular Dystrophy Canada. The money raised by Medicine Hat Fire Fighters will be used to improve the quality of life for people living with neuromuscular disorders by purchasing mobility equipment, providing support services, and funding research which will one day lead to a cure.

Fire Fighters have been supporters and fundraisers for Muscular Dystrophy Canada since 1954. They continue to amaze us with their commitment to the over 50,000 Canadians affected by neuromuscular disorders. Campouts are just one more example of their valor and community spirit.

The community has always been very supportive of the work our heroes tirelessly undertake to support Muscular Dystrophy Canada, and now these Fire Fighters are relying on your gift to make this endeavor their biggest success yet!



Thank You Again To Our Sponsors!



Medicine Hat Fire Fighters conduct ice dive operations

First responders remain on the scene at the reservoir south of the city where the truck belonging to missing Seven Persons-area man was discovered Wednesday and where Medicine Hat Fire Department divers have conducted a body recovery operation.

Divers from the Medicine Hat Fire Department made multiple excursions into the ice-covered reservoir near the intersection of Township Road 120 and Range Road 60 on Thursday for more than four hours.

Friends and family of missing 25-year-old Kirby Lust are at the scene as is the fire department’s chaplain.

Lust went missing late Saturday night and was last seen leaving Jigger’s Pub in South Ridge.

He was reported missing Monday with friends and family launching an air and land search for the man and his vehicle following the uncharacteristic disappearance of the father of one.

The reservoir is located at a sharp bend in Range Road 60 south of Medicine Hat.

Medicine Hat Firefighters are urging the public to check their carbon monoxide detectors as temperatures drop and furnaces start kicking in. Carbon monoxide is a colourless, odourless gas that is created when fuels combust. It can come from your furnace, your hot water tank, your fireplace or vehicles in your garage. Read More...
