Kelowna firefighter back to work after two-and-a-half years and 13 surgeries following serious injuries sustained while fighting fire
After two-and-a- half years of recovering from serious injuries sustained on the job, a longtime and well-respected Kelowna firefighter is back at work. Chris Zimmerman, the son of former fire chief Gerry Zimmerman, was badly burned while fighting a condo fire in the summer of 2017. He recently returned to his job and despite his frightening ordeal, he says he still loves firefighting and serving the community.
