Fire Department Celebration
Near the end of last month, the Nanaimo Fire Rescue Department held its annual departmental recognition celebration. A large crowd including Mayor and Council was on had at Station #2 to recognize special individual achievements from the past year. Six new hires were introduced, promotions were announced for several members, and the retirements of Ron Daly, Brian Mowatt, and Martin Drakely. Long-service medals were also presented, including 30-year bars to Blair Pinker and Jeff Fulla, and 35-year bars to Colin Dyck and Randy Geddes. Congratulations and thanks to all for their excellent service to our city.
