Youth Fire Chief Winner Named

The first ever Youth Fire Chief contest winner was celebrated by Centre Wellington Fire Rescue (CWFR) and Crime Stoppers Guelph Wellington (CSGW).

The contest, where donors to CSGW between March 13-31, 2024 were automatically entered into a draw where the winner would be the Youth Fire Chief, was so well received that it will return.

On April 10, Anand Kaur, a six-year-old from Township of Wellington North, was presented with a special fire helmet, a Chief’s shirt and a certificate to commemorate her day.┬áThe new chief assisted with fire control drills as well as a tour of the fire hall. She also learned about general fire safety and how to keep her family safe with safety planning.
