First responders to be honoured

Royale Pacifica to hold third-annual 911 appreciation party on Wednesday

The Royale Pacifica will be hosting its third-annual 911 appreciation party Aug. 14.

The event will take place 11:30-1:30 a.m. at the South Surrey retirement centre, 2525 King George Blvd., and will include firefighters, 911 operators, RCMP members and paramedics.

Staff and the community will have the opportunity to thank the first responders for their efforts in the community, community relations manager Kellie Besseling said.

“The entire fourth floor has doors painted fire-engine red after we dedicated the floor to Surrey firefighters and first responders,” she said.

Besseling added that there will be a plaque presentation during the event and one of the residents will present the first responders with $300 they have raised for the BC Professional Fire Fighters Association Burn Fund.
