A Gathering of the Chiefs

The Port of Summerside became a hub of activity and flashing lights as the Maritime Fire Chiefs Association gathered for their 101st Annual Conference.  Fire Chiefs from New Brunswick, Newfoundland/Labrador, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island came together to share life saving methods from one another, learn about new technologies and enjoy the sunny hospitality that the Island offers its visitors.
