Kawartha Lakes firefighters recognized for 25-55 years of service

“In total, 1170 years of service have been offered by members of our Fire Service. What I most appreciate about the Long Service recognition is that volunteer firefighters and career firefighters are acknowledged in the same way,” commented Fire Chief Mark Pankhurst.

What is equally important is that the significant others of the recipients also received a beautiful trillium broach from the Province in recognition of the support they have given over many years. “Significant others play a huge role by being there when the firefighters are called to duty and when they come home. It is fitting that they are recognized as well,” said Fire Chief Mark Pankhurst.

Chief Pankhurst also recognized and thanked Mr. Nicols for his service as the Fire Marshal of Ontario. Nichols was born and raised in Lindsay. He has been seconded from the OPP as the Fire Marshal for the past couple of years and he will be returning back to the OPP in the next few months.

Those recognized include:
