Fernie had some new chiefs in town last week as part of Fire Prevention Week.

Three Fernie schoolgirls won the chance to be a Fire Chief for a day in a contest, and spent the day enjoying a breakfast with Sparky the Fire Dog at McDonald’s, learning about fire safety, touring City Hall and going for a ride in a fire truck!

 

This year’s three winners were Aislinn Diessler, who attends Fernie Academy, Sierra Pomerantz, who goes to Isabella Dicken Elementary School, and Lauryn Sims, who also attends Isabella Dicken.
