It was a time to say thank you to all of those first responders in Fort St. James who continue to be there when the community calls.

On Aug. 20, members of the Fort St. James Fire Dept., the RCMP and the BC Ambulance Service came together to share breakfast with the community to celebrate all that they have done and continue to do in keeping the community safe.

Pete Panesar, a longtime member of the Fort St. James Fire Dept. was thrilled with the turnout as he welcomed people into the Fire Hall for a fantastic filling breakfast.

“It’s important that we recognize all of our first response workers. They do so much for the community and we should celebrate that,” Panesar said.

Breakfast also included a colouring table and bouncy castle for all of those future first responders who were eager to take a peek inside the fire hall.

All were greeted warmly by Fire chief Michael Navratil.

There was even a visit from M.P. for Skeena-Bulkley Valley, Nathan Cullen, who was eager to chat and say thanks to all first responders in Fort St. James.
