Dauphin, Canada

It was a good turnout at the Dauphin Fire Department’s recruitment night.

The event took place last night and had a full house of community members come out and learn what it takes to become a volunteer firefighter.

Dauphin Fire Chief, Cam Abrey, says he was happy with the interest from the community.

“Honestly shocked that we had this many people come out.  I was really nervous about how many people we would have come out this evening.  I don’t know what to say other than ‘thanks’ to these members that are thinking of giving back to their community.”

Abrey said the event was a great way to let people know what it takes, and the level of commitment it requires, to become a firefighter, before they decide to join.
