Long-time fire chief receiving Governor General’s Award

By Rosalind Russell – The Township of the North Shore will be having a presentation tomorrow evening to honour their long-time fire chief being presented on behalf of the Governor General’s office.

Mayor Tony Moor says he pleased to be presenting the award to Fire Chief Matthew Simon, who is being recognized for 20 years of service.

He says Simon initially began his fire-fighting career 33 years ago with the Township of Ear Falls Fire & Rescue in 2003 before moving to the township and immediately signing up as a member of their fire-fighting service.

Moor says The Fire Services Exemplary Service Medal honours members of a recognized Canadian fire service who have completed 20 years of service, ten years of which have been served in the performance of duties involving potential risks and were employed on or after the date of creation of the Medal.

Having served 20 years with the service, Simon will be presented with the medal by Moor at the council meeting tomorrow evening at seven pm and the public is invited to attend.
