On Saturday, Nov. 25, Fire Chief Randy Worsley of the CRD’s Wildwood Volunteer Fire Department received the Governor General’s Fire Services Exemplary Service Medal for his 30 years of service with the fire department. A ceremony was held at the Wildwood Fire Hall and CRD Electoral Area D Director Steve Forseth presented the award.
“I could not be prouder of Chief Worsley. He is a tremendous asset to the Wildwood VFD, his community and the Regional District. It is wonderful to see his years of service honoured in this way,” said Director Forseth.
CRD Manager of Protective Services Stephanie Masun, who also attended the event, added: “Thank you Randy for your dedication and commitment to the Wildwood Volunteer Fire Department. Your knowledge and leadership are an inspiration to those who work with you.”
The Fire Services Exemplary Service Medal honours members of a recognized Canadian fire service who have completed 20 years of service, ten years of which have been served in the performance of duties involving potential risks.
Chief Worsley was first awarded the Exemplary Service Medal on June 20, 2007, upon his 20 years of service. For his additional 10-year period of service, a Bar bearing a stylized maple leaf is awarded to add to the Medal.
