Fire Department Flag Lowered

February 7, 2021

Flags at Peace River Fire Halls are at half mast in honour of an Alberta Volunteer Firefighter who died on Friday night in the line of duty.

Firefighter Stephen Rayfield of the Castor Fire Department died while responding to a motor vehicle collision. The Fire Truck that he was in lost control in the extremely icy conditions and rolled. The Fire Chief was also injured in that incident.

The Peace River Fire Department’s thoughts and prayers are with Stephen’s family, fellow firefighters on the Castor Fire Department and the community of Castor.
