Delta Fire Remembers Captain Mark Janson

Jan 19, 2015

It is with deepest regret and sadness that we must advise of the passing of one of Delta Fire's own, long serving member Captain Mark Janson. 

Captain Janson was fatally injured while walking his dog in his Langley neighbourhood on Thursday, January 15. Although every effort was made by first responders and medical professionals to save his life, Captain Janson succumbed to his injuries. 

This is a very difficult time for everyone in the department and a hard loss as Mark was a highly respected Officer and well-liked member of our team. 

We will provide any support to his family that is requested at this time. Support will also be available to any of our personnel that are deeply affected by this tragedy. 

Mark is survived by his wife Lynda and son Braden. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Captain Janson's family and friends. 

Dan Copeland
Fire Chief

In honour of Captain Janson, the Delta flag has been lowered to half-mast.
