A hearty and warm 'congratulations' (again) to all recent recipients of a promotion who attended the JFRD Quarterly Promotional Ceremony held on Tuesday, 8 August on the 5th Floor of the Administrative Building downtown. The standing-room-only crowd (well over 100 in attendance!) delivered an electric atmosphere and in the process the perfect backdrop for the Department's official act of publicly acknowledging this important milestone and achievement in the careers of these professional emergency responders. Well done to all!

Keeping within the previously established narrative of 'recognition,' another big event coming up for the Department is the Annual Awards Ceremony highlighting significant achievements by both individuals and units throughout the Department as recorded in the past year, 2016. This year's ceremony is scheduled for Tuesday, 22 August at 7 PM in the Union Hall on Stockton Street.
