This year the Municipality of the County of Colchester recognized volunteer firefighters who have 50 or more years of service. The Municipality values the dedication of all of their volunteer emergency responders, but to serve and protect a community and its residents for half a century is an exceptional measure of community service.
The individuals who have served five or more decades or have literally built the organizations that they have contributed to and served in over their tenure. They are and have been the leaders that created the volunteer fire and emergency services in the County of Colchester.
