MENTOR STORIES

Jay Yaciw

Regina, SK

Platoon Chief John Bernier. Served as L0492 president and was part of the executive who made some of the largest gains for the firefighters of L0492 but also made lasting relationships with the city management.

Also he led the membership to be strong supported of the city through our community benefit fund. He has always been humble and would never take credit for his good work, instead passing it on to the rest of the local executive. Was instrumental in training, many firefighters and junior officers and just recently retired during the pandemic. Unfortunately, as is the case everywhere, we where unable to have a celebration in his honour. His presence and guidance will be missed at Sarnia Professional Firefighters Association L0492.
