MENTOR STORIES

John Clune

Coquitlam, BC

Retired Captain Rob Causier of Burnaby Firefighters local 323 has been a mentor for me on and off the job. As a community soccer coach he encouraged me to follow my dreams and become a firefighter, I am proud to have done so and work with Rob in Burnaby. 

Before he retired he showed me the passion, leadership and hard work required to help keep this job great. As a Captain he lead by example, training, volunteering, teaching and learning. He always was willing to give advice to junior firefighters, demonstrate the skills of the job and lend an ear to whoever needs it, and continues to do so.

He is one of the most respected members of our department and has inspired many to keep this job great now that he's retired! About as great of a mentor that you can get!
