The Compass - - SPORTS -

Ge­orge Crocker, for­mer fire chief and a 20-year vet­eran with the Har­bour Grace Vol­un­teer Fire Bri­gade ac­cepted his ser­vice medals at the Bri­gade’s May monthly din­ner.

Crocker is cur­rently in his 21st year of ser­vice, but be­cause he was out of the prov­ince work­ing when the awards were handed out, he choose the May meet­ing to re­ceive the medals.

In recog­ni­tion of 20 years of ser­vice he was pre­sented the Fed­eral Medal for Ex­em­plary Ser­vice in Fire­fight­ing; the Mal­tese Cross, and ac­com­pa­ny­ing cer­tifi­cate; the Pro­vin­cial Long Ser­vice Medal, and ac­com­pa­ny­ing cer­tifi­cate and 20 Years of Ser­vice pin from the Bri­gade.

Chief So­nia Wil­liams ex­plained, “Once 20 years of ser­vice has been reached, it is at the fire­fighter’s dis­cre­tion when he re­ceives his 20-years-of-ser­vice awards, and it is from here that a fire­fighter in the Har­bour Grace Vol­un­teer Fire Bri­gade can re­tire and move up to Life­time Mem­ber­ship within the Bri­gade.”
