Here at HIFR we mark anniversaries in half-decade increments. It’s disappointing that 2020 is a year we can’t get together and celebrate when there were so many long service anniversaries for us:
- Faroe DesRoche: 5 years
- Deputy Chief Albini Lapierre: 15 years
- John Heinegg: 15 years
- Sasha LeBaron: 15 years
- Jeremy Paine: 15 years
- Paula Courteau: 25 years
While all those anniversaries are notable, please join us in congratulating Paula on so many years of dedicated service to our island community!
Also notable is Sasha Lebaron will be retiring at the end of this year to spend more time with his family and to grow his business. Through his time at HIFR, he has served as Training Officer and Lieutenant and has spent dozens of weeks as duty officer .
In 2021, when we can get together again, we will have a proper celebration with letters from the Governor-General, medals, gifts, and handshakes. The dedication and commitment of our fire and first responder crew is inspiring.
