Lunenburg County Volunteers Contribute to Book About Community Fire Departments

FSANS

The fish plant in Riverport was in flames, and Bill Rhodenizer was worried about the safety of the people watching from their boats in the LaHave River.

It was Sept. 26, 1981. Rhodenizer was the Bridgewater department’s deputy fire chief. It was the first time the department used its new aerial ladder truck, a piece of equipment it had been hoping to buy for 18 years.

He is a retired RCMP member and has all the ribbons for all the various medals that we get so can ‘court-mount’ medals (putting a number of them on one backing) and he can create the ‘undress’ bar of ribbons for informal wear.  He works in his home, so you need to call first to ensure he’s around.
