Division Chief, Brampton Fire and Emergency Services
George Hitchcock joined Brampton Fire and Emergency Services in 1974, and served the community for 33 years. Among his many achievement, including becoming the Division Chief of Fire/Life Safety and Education, George played a significant roll in developing and nurturing many of Brampton Fire and Emergency Services’ innovative programs. A program that he was very proud of was the the High School Co-operative Education program. The program was a way for George to promote the fire service as a wonderful career choice and would mentor those students who felt the same passion for the fire service as he did
Whether speaking about fire safety or the fire service to children or adults, George’s compassion for helping people and inspiring others will always be remembered by those who knew him.
