RBC buys camera for Fire Dept.

The Royal Bank of Canada donated money for a new thermal imaging camera for the Cache Creek Fire Dept. after finding out how useful it was in battle the fire in its Cache Creek branch back in July.

The $13,000 donation covered the full cost of the camera.

“If it helps someone else – and it will – prevent the whole structure from being damaged while they look for the fire, then it will be worth it,” said Pam Shaw, Regional Vice President BC Interior

Plaza boarded up

After several months of being told by the Village of Cache Creek to board up his unsightly storefront, the owner of the Oasis Plaza complied as his final deadline arrived.

On Oct. 15, owner Joe Carhoun removed the signs and boarded up the storefronts. And within 24 hours of finishing, the freshly painted plywood had been vandalized. The affected parts were quickly repaired.
