The CRD’s 150 Mile Volunteer Fire Department Fire Chief, Stan McCarthy, is being honoured with the B.C. Medal of Good Citizenship. Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett nominated Chief McCarthy for the medal.

“Fire Chief Stan McCarthy goes beyond the call of duty in his daily life. He is true to his family and community and his leadership during the 2017 wildfires will never be forgotten,” MLA Barnett explains regarding her nomination of Chief McCarthy.

The Province of B.C. awards the Medal of Good Citizenship to recognize individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the well-being of their communities. 18 recipients were selected this year from more than 100 nominations.

“Congratulations Chief McCarthy! You are so deserving of this honour,” states Electoral Area F Director, Joan Sorley. “Thank you for your service to the 150 Mile VFD and the broader community for the past 37 plus years. Your selfless dedication has not gone unnoticed.”

Chief McCarthy has served the 150 Mile VFD since 1981 and is one of the founding members. He has filled many roles in the department, including being Fire Chief for nearly 20 years. As a recipient of the Medal of Good Citizenship, a biography of McCarthy is published here: https://bit.ly/2Ryltzz
