In response to a recommendation from the Tribal Emergency Response Team (TERT) Committee, Tribal Council approved the purchase of a 35’ extension ladder for Smith River Fire Protection District (SRFPD). SRFPD would be the first responder in an emergency at Howonquet Lodge (the only three story building in Smith River), and would be able to respond to multiple areas of the Lodge with this ladder and an additional ladder purchased by SRFPD. The ladders will be mounted on the existing firefighting response vehicle.
