Moose Jaw Fire Department chief Garth Palmer discusses city issues during the budget committee meeting at city hall on Feb. 6, 2012.
The 62nd Saskatchewan Association of Fire Chiefs Annual Conference wrapped up Saturday evening with a formal banquet. Over 200 fire chiefs and they’re companions were out in full dress to give one last hurrah before heading back to their respective cities.
Moose Jaw Fire Chief Garth Palmer said the weekend went off without a hitch.
“I think it went excellent. We had a really good turn out of people, some good speakers, and good fellowship with chiefs from around the province,” he said. “Couldn’t ask for much more.”
The chiefs were treated to many presentations throughout the weekend including a motivational speech from Catriona Le May Doan and a talk from Jamie Coutts, fire chief in Slave Lake, and the city’s councilor Mark Missal on the issues they faced in last year’s devastating fire.
