Every year, Cranbrook McDonald’s Restaurant and the Cranbrook Fire Department team up and choose a child (or two!) from the community to be an honorary Fire Chief for the Day in an effort to promote fire awareness and safety in a fun way. On December 4th we celebrated our Fire Chief for the Day contest winners Tanner Eckersley, age 8, and Sam Nakahara, also 8, who both attend Gordon Terrace Elementary School. The Cranbrook firefighters spent time in their classroom, answering questions and promoting fire safety. Tanner and Sam also got to travel to McDonald’s for lunch in the fire truck!
