During their regular Council Meeting held July 19th, 2021 Council was honoured to recognize two long-term local firefighters with the City of North Battleford Fire Department.
Mayor David Gillan presented Rob Beatch and Brian Marchewka with medals honouring their extended and exemplary service.
Rob Beatch received his 30 Year Exemplary Service Bar and the Canadian Volunteer Municipal Long Service Medal. Beatch began his service as a firefighter in 1990.
Brian Marchewka received his 40 Year Service Bar. Marchewka began his service in 1980.
Fire Chief Lindsay Holm emphasized that these medals are not given to firefighters simply for being on the force for a period of time; recipients must have records of exemplary dedication and undergo a thorough vetting. Chief Holm further emphasized the contributions and dedication of each recipient and their commitment to the fire service.
