    New fire department decals use past as inspiration for future

    ​The Lethbridge Fire Department has deep-rooted history in the community. For context, Lethbridge was incorporated as a town in 1890 and as a city in 1906 – 20 years after LFD's origins in 1886. In July 1886, the Steamship Alberta was docked for the last time in the Lethbridge river valley and the bell was then taken and hung up downtown as the combined fire/curfew bell. Now, 136 years later, a recent addition to the LFD fleet downtown features throwback looks to honour their distinguished past.
