Fire Chiefs for the Day.

Fire Chiefs for the day

Four elementary school students in Sooke got to play fire fighter

On October 24, four Fire Chiefs of the Day were given the full tour (though not full gear, thank goodness) at Sooke’s fIre station. Fire Chief for the Day is an annual event where four students are selected through a draw from each of the four elementary schools in Sooke. They enjoy lunch at the fire station, a tour, an opportunity to use some of the equipment, and at the end of it all, are driven back to their schools in a fire engine.

From left to right: Dakota Kozina (Saseenos), Mathew Gosselin (Poirier), William Howard (John Muir), Steve Sorenson (the Fire Chief on the other 364 days of the year), and McKenzie Johnson (Sooke).
