Mark, Peter, Mike and Larry have been on the front lines in central B.C. for almost 2 weeks now. So proud of our Brothers. They did 6 night shifts and now on days working at Fraser Lake. When not on duty they rest in Vanderhoof at the Nechako Secondary school. The Echo Lake Bible Camp staff are feeding them well at Gospel Chapel Evangelical Free Church. They had been at the Echo Lake Bible Camp but due to evacuation of Camp they had to move. Keep up the good work and Stay Safe👍🏻. #IAFF #BCPFFA #Kelowna @bcpffa #BCwildfires
