Curtis was an advocate for the removal of stigma associated with first responders seeking help for mental health issues, as well as for the mental health supports that are currently available.
He was the primary mover and shaker behind many of the developments that resulted in the expansion of cancer coverage for firefighters and the families of those firefighters. Because of his approach and work in the political forum, the APFFPA was able to engage decision-makers and ensure that the health, safety, rights, and entitlements of our members were understood and supported.

We developed as individuals as a result of Curtis’s guidance.
Medicine Hat was home to Curtis’s career as a firefighter for Local 263, which he held for many years. Not only was he happy to serve his community as a Qualified Officer, but he also was happy to serve as a leader in the IAFF. Both of these things made him very happy.
Our deepest sympathies go out to Curtis’ loved ones, including his family and friends, as well as all of his brothers and sisters in the Medicine Hat Firefighters family. There are going to be a lot of people who can’t function normally without him.
