New fire chief in Prince Rupert

Charlie Nundal takes the reigns as fire chief for the day

The Prince Rupert Fire Department made some managerial changes on Monday, installing a new fire chief to oversee the city’s fire and rescue affairs.

Charlie Nundal from Annunciation School was made fire chief for the day, after winning the honour in a contest held during Fire Prevention Week in October. There was plenty for the new chief to do; following a pickup from his school in the fire engine, Nundal headed to the fire station where he took a tour and conducted a workplace inspection.

After making sure everything was in order at headquarters, Nundal and his fellow firefighters went to Safeway for a celebration cake before heading to McDonald’s for lunch.

Dave Mckenzie will resume his regular duties as fire chief tomorrow.
