Northern HEAT Conference

MLA Jabbour addresses the Northern HEAT firefighters conference

Northern HEAT conference speech

As the historic wildfire continued to rage in Fort McMurray, I visited the Northern HEAT Conference in Peace River, where hundreds of firefighters from Northwest Alberta had gathered for live fire training and educational sessions on engine company operations and leadership. Standing in front of a room full of such brave men and women, knowing each and every one was ready and willing to face fires and risk their own lives to keep the rest of us safe, I felt the most important thing to say was simply "Thank you."
