Meet Revelstoke’s Chiefs for a Day!

Freyja Nielsen and Tobin Gill of Begbie View Elementary School were this year’s Fire Chief for a Day Contest winners. Freyja’s and Tobin’s fire safety posters, illustrating their knowledge and understanding of fire safety, were chosen from among 67 submissions by local school kids. Freyja and Tobin were picked up at school on Monday, November 5, in Fire Engine No. 1 and spent the afternoon as the City’s Fire Chiefs. Fire Chiefs Nielsen and Gill received a tour of the fire hall, fire truck rides, prize packages and participated in fire department activities. The two young Fire Chiefs were then treated to a pizza lunch with Fire Chief Rob Girard and the Fire Rescue Service’s career firefighters. Photo courtesy of Revelstoke Fiore Rescue Service
