1: Catherine's day at the Firehall included a trip on the hundred-foot-high aerial ladder, with a turn at the controls to see what it's like fighting fires from on high. 2: Catherine with Deputy Chief John McDougall, left, and Acting Captain David Dempster. 3: When she got to the Firehall, the first thing Catherine saw was a red barber chair. Many of the men had shaved their heads to lend moral support to a colleague with cancer, and to raise money to help fight the disease.
