Fire Inspector, Alyn Stobbe, says the selection of Honourary Fire Chief of the Day is part of the Fire Prevention Week program.

“Every year we go through the schools for Fire Prevention Week, and so through that process, we get to educate the grade threes, well the entire elementary school, but the grade threes, in particular, they’re kind of our target group. So as part of that target group, for the grade threes, there is draws for Fire Chief for the Day. We collect ballots from the grade threes, and we randomly select one and this year we have Beth MacPherson as our Honourary Fire Chief for the Day”.

A presentation of a certificate was made by Mayor Lori Ackerman and Fire Chief Fred Burrows in honour of MacPherson’s appointment as Fire Chief for the Day.
