August 7: The Volunteer Vision


podcastTopWhat is the status of today’s volunteer fire service in Canada? Take a look through the eyes of Fire Fighting in Canada Volunteer Vision columnists Tom DeSorcy and Vince Mackenzie; two chiefs at the heart of volunteer fire service delivery. Recruitment, retention, increased training demands and an ageing membership will form the conversation alongside succession planning and meeting the needs of the future. How will service delivery change in the changing world?

Vince MacKenzie is the fire chief in Grand Falls-Windsor, N.L. He is an executive member of the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs.

Tom DeSorcy became the first paid firefighter in his hometown of Hope, B.C., when he was appointed fire chief in 2000. He is the communications director and conference committee chair for the Fire Chiefs’ Association of B.C.
