From The Western Star


If you ask members of the Corner Brook Fire Department, says Jen Jenkins,  they’re sure to tell you that firefighting is in their blood. That they had a father, grandfather or uncle who was a firefighter.

As the newest relief and first female firefighter at the department, Jenkins is no different. Growing up the fire department was a big part of her life. “I loved it right from the get-go.”

Her father Woody Mercer, a retired lieutenant, and step-father Carl King, a retired captain, both served with the St. John’s Regional Fire Department.

Congratulations to Jen on following her dream and on keeping the tradition alive.
