Inuvik firefighters’ ball 2011: Now here’s a side of Inuvik you might not expect!

Inuvik’s fire department is staffed by volunteers. About 30 people are part of the agency, which has some great camaraderie. Most of the volunteers don’t have jobs in emergency services; they can be called from their jobs or beds at any time when a fire happens.

The Firefighters’ Ball is Inuvik’s way of saying thanks. Every year the department throws a bash. There’s a Rookie of the Year Award as well as the Boner of the Year Award for the biggest on-the-job mistake.

The firefighters also recognize a firefighter of the year. The ball has a theme and this year it was “Outer Space.”

As you can see, pop-culture is everywhere. We have common heroes, villains, characters, icons and people love to dress for an occasion!
