The 2016 Fire Fighter Recognition Event was a huge success. Being a volunteer fire fighter requires such dedication and Haldimand County recognizes these individuals for all they do. Each year fire fighters are recognized for long time service, promotions, retirements and to welcome our new recruits. 2016 was the highest number of recruits at 27. It's a night for the fire fighters, for the municipality to say "Thank-you" for all you do!
