Hartland Fire Department Fire Chief Mike Walton and the 30 Volunteer members are dedicated trained fire fighters.  When not fighting fires they are out fundraising for new fire equipment with events including their annual trade show and the firemen breakfasts. This is a big loss to their department.

If you have any information on who may have been responsible for the theft, you're asked to call 506-325-8189.

A $1,000 cash reward is being offered.  Tips can remain anonymous.
