Some McMurrayites are trying to get Darby Allen a little bit of extra cash to thank him for helping save Fort McMurray from “The Beast.”
The R.E.S. fire chief has been nominated for Post Cereal’s “Search for Goodness” award. The Canada-wide campaign is aimed at rewarding someone who “exemplifies community goodness.” The prize for the vote-based award is $10,000.
“Hasn’t done much,” reads his brief nomination description. “Only led his firefighters through the biggest firefight of their lives.”
As of 6:45 a.m. on Monday morning, Allen sat at just over 3,904 votes. You can vote for him by clicking here and searching for his nomination.
