2019 - Troy Auton, Steve Maruk, Justin Tanner

Firefighters Steve Maruk, Justin Tanner and Troy Auton as part of the Stettler Regional Fire Department were nominated for the 2019 Clearview Star Award for their volunteerism, including their contributions to the community and Clearview students at Stettler Elementary School and Donalda School. As local volunteer firefighters, they have visited Clearview schools in Stettler and Donalda to provide fire safety education. They have also provided fire station tours to groups of students.

“Steve Maruk and Justin Tanner have graciously presented Fire Safety to our Kindergarten students for the past two years. Aside from prepping for the presentation, they give up 4 hours of their own time as they have to present to four separate classes (99 students). They serve as positive role models who show a personal interest in our students. They bring an interactive model home that demonstrates the dangers such as smoke and electrical fires. The model house is an aide to help the students visually learn about fire proofing rooms in the home. They also provided the students with fire engine hats and goody bags with educational resources for parents/children, coloring activities and emergency information. We have had plenty of positive feedback from parents about how much their child has learned about fire safety. We are so appreciative of all of the hard work that these Stettler Heros put into teaching our young children about staying safe,” - Stettler Elementary School

“We had Firefighters Justin Tanner and Troy Auton visit the Donalda Kindergarten in November 2018.  They were both very professional and taught the students all about fire safety in our homes. They encouraged the students to actively participate in their learning.  They also provided each student a package that included a fire hat that they loved! The presentation helped to reinforce everything we had talked about in previous classes.  I will definitely have them come to our classroom again!” - Donalda School

Congratulations Firefighters Troy Auton, Steve Maruk, and Justin Tanner for being co-recipients of the 2019 Clearview Star Award!
