|The Port Edward Fire Hall, home to the District's Volunteer Fire Department|
With Shawn Pettit having stepped away from his duties with the District of Port Edward after thirty years, the District's Volunteer Fire Department will be turning to Jason Giesbrecht to take on the duties of Interim Chief.
The announcement of the temporary move, comes as part of the District's March update now posted to the Port Edward municipal website.
In the update, the Mayor and Council pay tribute to the work of now former Chief Pettit pointing to his professionalism over the last three decades as he steered the Volunteer Department through many challenging times and fire fighting experiences.
In addition to working emergency situations in the District, the Port Edward Volunteers also respond to calls for assistance along the Highway 16 corridor.
You can find some of their work over the years as part of our accounts from the files of Northwest Emergency Responders.
