Jamie Dempster has been a volunteer firefighter with Shelburne & District Fire Department since 2002.
He suffered serious injuries while working as a millwright in Orangeville on December 30, 2020.  He received severe burns to 30-40% of his body some of which were 3rd degree. After undergoing several surgeries at Sunnybrook he is being transferred to a rehab center this week.

The Firefighters Association has done a collection which was directly donated to the family.
