Sproat Lake, Beaver Creek fire chiefs receive 30-year bars

Two Alberni Valley fire chiefs have received recognition for 30 years of service.

Mike Cann, the fire chief for Sproat Lake Volunteer Fire Department (SLVFD), and Mike Kobus, the fire chief for Beaver Creek Volunteer Fire Department (BCVFD), each received a Fire Services Exemplary Service Medal bar representing 30 years of service during an Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District board meeting on Wednesday, May 8.

Cann joined the SLVFD in 1993 and has served as the department’s fire chief since 2015.

Kobus, meanwhile, became a volunteer member of the BCVFD in 1992 and was promoted to fire chief in 2020 after serving 12 years as a deputy fire chief.
