Dauphin, Canada

Dauphin Firefighters were recognized yesterday for the contributions they make for the city and the region.

The City of Dauphin hosted the 2018 Firefighters Appreciation Evening to honour their dedication to keeping our community safe.

During the evening two members of the department were recognized for five years of service and two others were recognized for their time with the department after they decided to retire.

Dauphin Fire Chief Cam Abrey says this annual event is a great way for city representatives to say thank you to the firefighters.

“To have a recognition night like this where they actually come out and sit with the firefighters and shake hands and get to know each other on a first basis. They know the politicians actually care about their safety.”

Representatives from the city, RM, and the RCMP came out last night to show their appreciation to the department.
