Regional Fire Officer meeting held in Flagstaff County

Nearly 50 firefighters and fire officers representing 22 fire departments descended on the Flagstaff County Administration Building on Sat. March 23 for the 2019 East Central Alberta Fire Officer Meeting.

The day-long event was hosted by Flagstaff County Regional Emergency Services Coordinator Kim Cannady and featured the following keynote presentations: ‘What You Probably Do Not Want To Hear’ by Chief Barry Johnstone and Deputy Chief Hugh Baier of the Provost Fire Department, ‘Alberta Critical Incident Stress Management’ by registered psychologist Jeff Sych, ‘AHS Medical First Responder Program’ by Natasha Schiebelbein, ‘Retail Cannabis Stores’ and ‘What to expect in a fire inspection/ fire response’ by Jenna Kozakevich of Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis.

The event proved to be a great opportunity for fire departments in the region to learn and network right here in Flagstaff County.
