The 2017 numbers have arrived for the Whitecourt fire department and town bylaw.

For the fire department, calls fell by about 20 overall compared to the previous year, with 328 in total.

But there was one category that sparked concern, according to Mayor Maryann Chichak.

The Brian Wynne-led staff had 101 calls for an alarm where a fire wasn’t registered in 2017.

Residents and business get one warning before fines are handed out.
