Pitt Meadows Fire and Rescue are looking to find the people who allegedly verbally harassed Assistant Fire Chief Brad Perrie on the job last week.

Fire chief Don Jolley says Perrie answered a call on Thursday on the Pitt River dike about people having a campfire, which is explicitly not permitted any time of the year.

“He didn’t seem too untoward, there were adults and some children, and as Brad started to explain to them they couldn’t have a campfire, they became verbally confrontational,” Jolley explained.

“Brad continued to tell them they had to put it out, and one of the males became verbally confrontational with Brad; pushed him, spat on him, tore his notebook out of his hands and threw it in the water,” he said.

The police were called but were unable to track the group down.

Jolley said Perrie was left feeling shaken up from the incident and calls the incident disgusting.

“[It’s] totally unacceptable, he’s trying to do his job, trying to be polite about it. It’s a bylaw in Pitt Meadows and it’s well known,” Jolley said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact RCMP.
