Members of Town of Fort Frances Council, administration, Fort Frances Power Corporation (FFPC) and Fort Frances Fire and Rescue Services were on site Monday morning for the official unveiling and start-up of the new backup generator that has been installed at Fort Frances High School. The school received the generator as it is designated as the town’s emergency evacuation centre, with kitchens, showers and plenty of space to house people in the event of an emergency. The new diesel-powered generator is programmed to kick in after five seconds of power loss from the grid and has been almost a decade in the works.
