Calgary Fire Department

125 years in the making …

Yours for Life: 125 Years of Courage, Compassion and Service from the Calgary Fire Department — researched and written by Judy Monchuk and designed by yours truly for the City of Calgary — was released to celebrate the Calgary Fire Department’s 125th anniversary in 2010.

The 112-page hardcover coffee table book contains stories, photographs, personal accounts, articles and ephemera that chronicle a growing city and the major events in the department’s history that helped shape it. A dynamic structure and progressive aesthetic was developed to represent the ever-changing fashions, fads and trends of the time — it’s a six-generation evolution from cover to cover.

Copies can be purchased from the Firefighters Museum of Calgary with all proceeds going directly to the museum.
