Veteran Firefighter Licence Plate Act

October 2, 2014

For immediate release

WINDSOR, NS – With Fire Prevention Week kicking off on Sunday October 5th, Chuck Porter, MLA Hants West, introduced a timely Private Member’s Bill yesterday entitled the Veteran Firefighter Licence Plate Act. This piece of legislation would allow veteran volunteer firefighters to obtain a licence plate for their vehicle recognizing their many years of dedication and service to their fire department.

“Our volunteer firefighters provide a crucial service for our neighbours and communities and they should be recognized for that”, Porter said. “We rely heavily on our firefighters whether they are responding to a motor vehicle accident, a fire in someone’s home or providing emergency medical attention.”

The licence plate would be recognized with the words “Veteran Firefighter” and would be issued to those volunteer firefighters who achieve veteran status within their respective fire department.
