May 30, Lake Country, B.C. – The Lake Country Fire Department announced a new LCFD Legacy Leadership grant program to its members on May 28. The grant program is a unique new support for career advancement in fire service leadership specifically for active LCFD members.

“As a legacy for the vision of the LCFD fire chiefs over the years, $100,000 has been donated through the inspiration of an LCFD supporter in our community, towards the establishment of anLCFD Legacy Leadership Grant endowment fund in 2022,” said Brent Penner, Acting Fire Chief, in a press release. “The goal in establishing this endowment fund with the investment income to be awarded in the form of grants, is to inspire paid-on-call members to excel in fire service leadership through training, development, coaching and education which is over and above the regular first response training provided to the membership.”

The LCFD Legacy Leadership Fund will be invested as an open endowment fund through the Central Okanagan Foundation. Assistance in administration of the LCFD Legacy Leadership Grant program will be provided by the District of Lake Country. Individuals and organizations are welcome to contribute to the endowment fund to speed its growth and sustainability in supporting Lake Country paid-on-call firefighters providing first response service to the growing community.
