City Fire Department Hosting Inaugural Gala

It's an event that's been a long time coming...after 227 years the fire department is hosting its inaugural gala. 

Not only will they be celebrating over two centuries of service, they'll also be fundraising for the Salvation Army's Community Outreach Program. Fire Chief Kevin Clifford tells CHSJ News the firefighters came up with the idea. He says the group is often at fire scenes offering help to victims, so it was a natural fit.

Clifford says events like this help boost morale no matter where you work.

The formal event is happening on Saturday, October 5 from 6pm to midnight at the Saint John Trade and Convention Centre. Tickets are $100 a pop, to buy one, click here.
