Captain Huw Jeffries

Cochrane Fire Department

With deep sadness, I share the news of the passing of our beloved colleague, Captain Huw Jeffries.

Huw was an integral part of our team, and his contributions will be remembered fondly by all who had the privilege of working with him during his nearly 32 years with Cochrane Fire Services.

As one of the first full-time firefighters, Huw helped Cochrane Fire Services transition from a volunteer to a full-time fire department. As our training officer, Huw mentored and trained many members of our team and firefighters from other surrounding and regional departments.

We will remember Huw as a leader, mentor and friend who always had time for others and never shied away from doing his best to help others learn and grow in their careers.

During this difficult time, let us come together to support each other and Huw’s wife Paula and his daughters Morgan and Shae.  In recognition of Huw and his deep-reaching connections and contributions across our community, flags will be lowered to half-mast at all town facilities until further notice.

 Rest in peace, Huw. We will miss you.

Fire Chief / Deputy Director of Emergency Management, Fire Services
