Capital Equipment Contribution

June 23, 2020


The Bethune and RM of Dufferin #190 Volunteer Fire Department and the Lumsden and District Volunteer Fire Department would like to thank Superior Forklift and Nutrien, for their recent donation of a side-by-side wildland firefighting unit. The apparatus will be shared between the neighbouring departments and may be deployed in either service area when needed. The addition of this unit will allow firefighters from Lumsden and Bethune to access areas where a full-size fire truck cannot go.
The custom Kioti Mechron side-by-side from Superior Forklift has been built to combat wildland fires, rescue victims, and to move firefighting personnel into hard to reach areas. It is powered by a powerful three-cylinder diesel engine and has been fitted with a full suspension, spring loaded, heavy duty track system to maneuver through the toughest of terrain. The hose reel with electric rewind comes with an option of 50ft of 1″ hose or 100ft of %” hose. The unit carries 70 gallons of water and an integrated Class A foam system which is piped to the 5.5 horsepower Honda pump. The tank has a large port for quick refilling off a fire truck or water tanker. A custom lighting package has been installed to alert the public and identify the machine as a responding unit in the fire department’s fleet.
Brian Weisbrod is the President and co-owner of Superior Forklift Ltd. He, along with co-owners Larry Geni and Sid Hurrell, started the business in 2001. The business began with a 200 square foot shop in Regina with the co-owners as the only employees and has expanded to a shop that covers 2.2 acres with additional branches in Saskatoon and Winnipeg and over 40 employees. Superior Forklift is committed to excellence in all business operations. They are locally owned and managed and committed to the growing province of Saskatchewan.
Superior Forklift offers several services. Repair and maintenance of heavy equipment, truck and trailer safety inspections, repair and maintenance of docks and doors, sweeping of parking lots, repair and maintenance of Olympia ice machines are just of few.
Superior also offers several product lines including Blue Giant, Genie, Hyundai, Kioti, Load Lifter, Olympia, Unicarriers, Wacker Neuson and most recently Cub Cadet.
Nutrien has an office in Lumsden and has been part of the community for many years. They work in partnership with local organizations to protect, grow and enrich communities where they operate. Thank you to Gord Emperingham and his team at Nutrien for their support.
Thank You for this generous capital equipment donation.

Exceptions are provided where two metre distancing between people can be maintained, such as workplaces and meeting settings where people are distributed into multiple rooms or buildings and retail locations deemed essential.

A list of critical public services and allowable business services has been created to inform the business community of which businesses can continue to operate in accordance with social distancing practices. A list of those businesses was provided with the news release of March 25, 2020. This is in addition to business services that were ordered closed on March 23.

To learn more about supports available for businesses and workers or for further clarity regarding allowable business services, email supportforbusiness@gov.sk.ca or visit the COVID-19 Information Page for Businesses and Workers at Saskatchewan.ca.

Also as of March 26, the closure and restrictions of food services includes an order that staff must dispense food products. Self-service of open, prepared food products (e.g. salad bars, soup and hot food items at convenience stores) is no longer permitted.

The complete public health orders are available at Saskatchewan.ca/COVID19.

Social Distancing in the Workplace
While many workplaces are deemed essential, those workplaces must ensure their occupational health and safety guidelines are up to date and in force to prevent the transmission of respiratory illnesses.

Workers, including those who work outdoors and agricultural producers, must follow personal protective measures to prevent the transmission of COVID-19.
• All travelers returning from international destinations – including the U.S. – are subject to a mandatory self-isolation order. Anyone identified by a Medical Health Officer as a close contact of someone with COVID-19 shall go into mandatory self-isolation for 14 days from the date of having been exposed. Exempted are truckers, airline, rail, and work crews that are required to work in order to maintain business continuity and are supervised by Infection Prevention and Control Officers or Occupational Health and Safety in the workplace.
• Actively monitor for symptoms. At the first sign of cough, immediately self-isolate for 14 days.
• Practice physical distancing in the workplace, including those workplaces that are outdoors. Maintain a two metre separation between individuals.
• Wash your hands often. Cough/sneeze into your elbow or tissue and wash your hands immediately.

With even mild symptoms, stay home
Everyone must play their part to prevent the transmission of COVID-19, no matter the size or location of their community.

Wash your hands frequently. Maintain social distance of two metres. Do not attend any events, public or private, where you cannot maintain that social distance. Self-monitor for symptoms in yourself or your dependents and stay home if you are ill with even mild symptoms of cough or fever.

Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Plant – Planned Plant Outage

March 4, 2020


This is just for your information.

No action to be taken by the residents of the Village of Bethune.

“Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Plant staff have advised the Water Security Agency (WSA) that a planned shutdown at the Buffalo Pound Water Treatment Plant will result in the shutdown and depressurization of the SaskWater Buffalo Pound West and North Pipelines for approximately 14 hours. Although there is a very low risk of contamination, the potential for contamination exists due to the depressurization and the natural degradation of the chlorine residual in the water as it sits in the line. Therefore, effective at 7:30 a.m. on March 13th 2020, the WSA is issuing a Precautionary Drinking Water Advisory (PDWA) for the Dufferin Water Association.

The Villages of Bethune, Disley and the Qu’Appelle Valley Water Users are exempt from this advisory due to their offline storage and re-chlorination capabilities.

An outage of the BP water treatment plant is tentatively scheduled for:
– Friday March 13 from approximately 07:30 to 21:30 and
– Sunday March 15 from approximately 08:30 to 14:30.

The shutdown is required to accommodate capital work projects at the plant. If the planned outage is canceled, rescheduled or altered the WSA will review and react accordingly”.
