Local heroes need our help this time in Comox Valley

Dear editor,

They respond daily in your times of crisis.

Dear editor,

They respond daily in your times of crisis.

Whether it be a fire or a medical emergency, when citizens of the Comox Valley call for help, local paramedics and firefighters Laura and Allan Farrant respond.

This past weekend the tables turned, however, and it is now them calling on the community for help.

The husband and wife couple, who both volunteer with the Courtenay fire department and also work as local BC Ambulance Service paramedics, lost their home this past weekend after a suspicious fire destroyed their duplex in the early-morning hours.

The couple had just bought their first home together this past month and were finally settling in when every homeowner’s worst nightmare happened.

These community emergency responders are now left on the other side of an emergency and are asking for your help to rebuild and move forward after this tragedy and total loss.

If you can help with donations of clothing, gift cards, money or household items, please drop off items at the Courtenay fire hall or the Courtenay ambulance station at 1890 Cliffe Ave.

Any help is greatly appreciated as everyone moves on from the devastating event.

For more information, contact T.J. Moore at tj.moore@APBC.ca

T.J. Moore,

Comox Valley
