Bruce Power FireFit Team Takes National Silver

Bruce Power’s FireFit team earned Silver at the Canadian National Finals, despite missing one member.

Over 250 people from across the country took part in the competition.

The member’s of the Emergency and Protective Services Department competed in individual and team relay events.

Justin Clarke, Donnie Mertes, Joel McFadden and Nathan Perrott are among the 300 members of Bruce Power’s Emergency Services Department.  They provide first response to the 4,000 employees and hundreds of contractors on site.

“This is the second straight year our FireFit has brought home a silver medal from the Canadian championships,” said Al Davis, chief of Bruce Power’s Emergency and Protective Services Division. “This year it is a huge achievement, considering our team ran the five-person relay with only four team members. The course this year was one of the hardest courses our team has ever seen, with the dummy drag portion of the course being uphill the whole way.”
