The City of Vernon is pleased to welcome four new full-time career firefighters to the Vernon Fire Rescue Services (VFRS) team. Ashton Sykes, Bryan Carter, Shawn Calder and Dave Robinson have joined the service as firefighters.

“These talented individuals bring a wide variety of experience and skills to VFRS and are a great addition to our team,” said Fire Chief David Lind.

The hiring of the new firefighters marks a significant milestone in the implementation of the Eight (8) Year Strategic Plan. The Plan moves Fire Services closer to a contemporary service model through a series of steps which will occur between 2018 and 2025.
