In March, FNESS was once again a part of the annual Gathering Our Voices (GOV) Indigenous Youth Leadership Training held this year in Port Alberni, BC. We were pleased to join forces with the Port Alberni Fire Department to offer two workshops at their fire hall. This is the 4-four year that we have worked with a municipal fire department to deliver the very popular Fire Prevention: Be a Firefighter workshop for the GOV youth. Fifty-five young people from across BC and Canada participated in high energy, hands-on fire prevention and suppression activities.
FNESS staffed a booth at the two-day career fair to provide more than 700 youth delegates and their chaperones with information about FNESS services, fire safety and opportunities in the fire service.
