Napanee chief thanks Woodstock crews

Ian Shelter, the acting fire chief in Napanee, Ont., visited the Woodstock Fire Department last week to present a plaque of appreciation to the crews who responded to a bus crash on Aug. 22 on Highway 401 in which several Napanee firefighters were injured and the wife of a firefighter was killed. The group was returning from London, Ont., where several firefighters had been hospitalized after their van crashed the day before following a FireFit competition in Windsor, Ont.
