This thank-you to first responders sign appeared on the hill above the centre-of-town parking lot where the auto-ex course was running at the Peace Regional Fire Chiefs conference in Peace River, Alta., on Friday. Some investigation revelead that it had been posted by a former firefighter who had a series of bad calls and stepped back from the job. The man turned to poetry and music to heal, and the sign includes song lyrics. As one firefighter said, "The sign was special enough along, even moreso now knowing the history."
