Charles Newton

Granisle, British Columbia

Charles Newton has dedicated 28 years to serving the Granisle Volunteer Fire Department, and 26 years as a member of the BC Ambulance Service, volunteering as an on-call ambulance attendant to help those in need. During a blizzard in 2006, Charles took it upon himself to visit each home in the region, to ensure the residents were safe and able to withstand the storm. In a small town where many residents are older, Charles’ generosity and tireless service provides comfort and a strong sense of community for all.
