Declan Skinner named Fire Chief for a Day!

Nov 06, 2015

What would you do if you were the Fire Chief of Delta for a day? 

Fire Chief for a Day Declan Skinner, a Beach Grove Elementary grade 4 student, started his day giving orders at Firehall #1 and taking a breakfast meeting with Chief Copeland and Mayor Lois E. Jackson. 

Chief Skinner participated in Fire Prevention Week and for doing so, he was selected as the winner of the 2015 Fire Chief for a Day contest.

Following his breakfast meeting, Chief Skinner will attend a high angle demonstration at Firehall #3, have lunch with the crew from Firehall #5, take part in a firefighter challenge at Firehall #7, and head to Firehall #7 for an important apparatus inspection. 

Mayor Jackson, Chief Copeland and Delta Fire & Emergency Services, and the Corporation of Delta, thank you for your service, Chief Skinner!

Since 1985, the Fire Chief for a Day contest has been Delta Fire & Emergency Service's prize incentive for elementary children participating in the annual Fire Prevention Week program.
