Edson, Alberta, June 15th, 2015 – A big milestone for a couple of Edson Firefighters.

Recently, two Edson firefighters attended a ceremony in Red Deer where they received some hardware on behalf of the Governor General.

Edson Fire Chief Alan Schram and Captain Stefan Farkas both received the 1St Bar of the Federal Fire Services Exemplary Service Medal, which is presented for 30 years of dedicated service.

“It’s an honour to receive this token of appreciation and it shows the strength and commitment on our local department”, said Edson Fire Chief Al Schram. “We have a lot of members that have dedicated decades to their community, and a good mix of young members coming up through the ranks as well.”
