On behalf of the Fanny Bay Fire Department I would like to thank all those kind and generous folks who stepped up and assisted us in dealing with the tragic loss of our department member and friend Paul Bally.
We received messages and support from fire departments both local and distant, government organizations as well as many people not connected with our department but who are friends and neighbours.
I would especially like to mention Chief Martin Eckervogt and the members of the Haines Junction Volunteer Fire Department in Haines Junction in the Yukon who sent a generous donation to the family along with their condolences.
It is difficult to adequately express gratitude for actions above and beyond the call of duty but then, that is what firefighters do every day. Again thanks everyone.
Chief Michael J. B. Smith
