Westminster Grade 2 student wins Fire Chief for a Day contest

A student from Westminster Elementary School will have an opportunity to be a Fire Chief for a Day on Saturday.

Members of Lethbridge Fire and Emergency Services visited the school Thursday morning to present Grade 2 student Siarah Girard with her Fire Chief for a Day certificate, along with a prize package and a firefighter uniform.

Girard coloured a safety message and submitted her entry form, which was one of 2,500 entries received. The Westminster student won the contest, as her class received a visit from members of the fire department, along with Spark the Fire Dog.

Following the award presentation, students went outside to tour a fire truck, and gathered for a group photo to wrap up the event.

On Saturday, Girard and her family will get the opportunity to ride in a fire truck, tour a city fire hall and meet for lunch at Moxie’s, as the Westminster student will get to experience a day in the life of a Lethbridge firefighter.
