Fort's second fire hall received new signage to honour a local legend.
On Friday (September 29), a special presentation was held to unveil the new 'Future Site Helmuth Ritter Fire Station' sign.
"It was so heartwarming to see (Helmuth) and Donna both crying tears of joy as we revealed the sign," said Fort Saskatchewan mayor Gale Katchur. "I've always said, we have to recognize people when they're alive so that they can enjoy when something is being named after them."
Ritter has served the local fire department for over 50 years and has lived in the Fort since 1966.
The new fire hall will be built along Southridge Boulevard in the next few years.
