50 Years of Service:

Today (March 22, 2022) at the Municipality of the District of Lunenburg Council meeting two individuals were presented CVFSA Municipal Long Service medals and a plaque by Mayor Carolyn Bolivar-Getson on behalf of the Municipality of the District of Lunenburg. The two volunteer firefighters were Edward Mulock of LaHave and Michael Mulock of West LaHave. (these communities are on the south shore of Nova Scotia)

Ed Mulock {forth from right} was an 11-year volunteer with the Conquerall Bank Fire Department before joining the LaHave & District Fire Department. With over 51 years of service, Ed has held every position in the LaHave & District Fire Department, from firefighter, officer rank, deputy chief and fire chief. Ed was also a member of the Michelin Emergency Response team during some of his years with Michelin Bridgewater.

A firefighter with the Conquerall Bank Fire Department for six years before joining the LaHave & District Fire Department, Mike Mulock {second from right} also served as a firefighter, officer rank, deputy chief and fire chief with LaHave & District Fire Department. Mike has also served on multiple committees including one for designing three of the departments apparatus and is currently assisting with the same for two new apparatus being considered.

Both Ed and Mike are believed to be the only twins to wear the white helmet of Fire Chief. They were both members of the Lunenburg County Ground Search and Rescue Team and acted as assistant search directors. Both gentlemen have also been recipients of the MODL Volunteer of the Year award and in 2017 they and their family were awarded the Volunteer Family Award by the Province of Nova Scotia.
