Fire chief McNab reporting for duty

Elowyn gets to be fire chief for a day

Kildala Elementary student Elowyn McNab found out first hand what it’s like to run a fire station for a day.

Elowyn was selected to be Honorary Chief for a Day and got to spend the morning riding around in a fire truck before being taken back to the fire hall to fill out some paperwork, including signing off on the firefighters’ salaries.

Chief Elowyn was introduced to the chief officers and the rest of the duty crew, conducted a hall inspection with the fire chief on duty and gave the fire department’s equipment the once over.

Chief Elowyn then got to sit down with the staff and Kitimat mayor Phil Germuth for lunch which was catered by the Chalet Restaurant in the fire hall lounge.

Chief Elowyn also got to take a cake back to school to share with classmates in the afternoon.
