Chief Wayne Morris

Chief Wayne Morris

Wayne Morris was a member of the Calgary Fire Department for 39 years; Fire Chief from 1999 until retiring in 2005. Wayne always selflessly worked to support his brother Firefighters. Shortly after retiring, Wayne was diagnosed with late stage 4 colorectal cancer himself. He was instrumental in the creation of the Calgary Firefighters Benevolent Society, a charitable organization that assists firefighters (active and retired) and their family members when they are faced with critical illness particularly illnesses that are a direct result of their service as firefighters. In spite of his own courageous battle against the disease, he has never complained nor faltered in his passion to serve his fellow man.
