It was a tight squeeze, but Langford firefighters Landis Carmichael, Robert Hennessey and Adam Kachanoski were mostly pleased to be headed for some Mexican sunshine as they left the West Shore Friday morning.
The three piled into the cab of a retired engine that’ll be getting a new purpose, as the newest addition of the Cabo fire department’s fleet.

Los Tres Amigos also brought a variety of supplies donated by departments from Colwood to Abbotsford, from medical supplies to ladders, as well as donated items pegged for a Mexican orphanage from the Westshore Sunrise Rotary Club and the YMCA-YWCA of Vancouver Island.
To help cover the roughly $10,000 cost to get the truck to Cabo, the City of Langford reached out to the West Shore Developers Association, which helped raise funds to get the truck on the road south.
