2023 Volunteer Fire Chief of the Year
Each year, the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs (CAFC) and the Fire Underwriters Survey host the Fire Chief of the Year Awards to recognize contributions from Fire Chiefs that go above and beyond the expected role. There are two awards which are being clarified this year as follows; one for a Volunteer Fire Chief (i.e. a fire chief who is volunteer or part time paid in a volunteer department), and one for a Career Fire Chief (i.e. a full time paid fire chief in a volunteer, composite or career department). During CAFC’s annual conference, Fire-Rescue Canada, the nominees and the winners are recognized for their outstanding contributions. Fire Underwriters Survey (FUS) and the CAFC are the sponsors of these prestigious national awards.
The 2023 Volunteer Fire Chief Award was awarded to Chief Dean Mineault of the Beausejour Brokenhead Fire Department. Congratulations and well deserved!
