Fire Service Expanding

The City of Vernon says they are pleased to welcome four new full-time career firefighters to the Vernon Fire Rescue Services. 

Ashton Sykes, Bryan Carter, Shawn Calder and Dave Robinson have joined the service as firefighters.

“These talented individuals bring a wide variety of experience and skills to VFRS and are a great addition to our team,” said Fire Chief David Lind.

Lind says the hiring of the new firefighters marks a significant milestone in the implementation of the Eight  Year Strategic Plan.  He says it is another step that moves Fire Services closer to a contemporary service model through a series of steps which will occur between now and 2025.
