Fort St. John — December 11, 2020 — For the eleventh day of the “12 Days of Giving” campaign, Peace River Hydro Partners gives $5,000 to the Charlie Lake Fire Department and Fort St. John Firefighters Charitable Society in support of local firefighting crews. The Fort St. John Firefighters Charitable Society offers support for burn survivors alongside the BC Fire Fighters Burn Foundation, as well as support for local families facing financial difficulties to travel for medical appointments and treatments.
PRHP’s Emergency Response Supervisor Jess Horsfield comments, “Several members of the Charlie Lake Fire Department have assisted with our safety training programs. The crewmembers are close-knit members of the community and we are grateful for their continuing support.”
The PRHP Emergency Response Team, led by Jess, works closely with the Charlie Lake Fire Department. Jess is also a trained firefighter, with more than six years of volunteer municipal firefighting experience. She also holds several certifications including licensed Emergency Medical Responder, Underground Mine Rescue, Swiftwater, Ice, High Angle Rescue and Highway Rescue -all at a Technician level, and has nearly completed her Emergency Management Certification. Firefighting is a cause near and dear to her heart that PRHP is honored to help support.
