Thanks to Timmins Firefighters

Northern College said Thank You in a special way recently when it presented a handcrafted and framed copy of the Fireman’s Prayer to the Timmins Professional Firefighters Association. Local president Peter Osterberg, left, accepted the framed prayer from Judy Rantala, who runs Northern College’s School of Health Science and Emergency Services, which includes the pre-firefighter program. Rantala explained that the gesture of thanks was directed to the professional firefighters in Timmins who have gone above and beyond in working with the college and contributing to the success of the firefighter’s training program and, said Rantala, “do an excellent job of mentoring” with the students. The current class of students attended the firehall and hosted a barbecue lunch for the firefighters.
