Abstract
Jack Fulton joined the New Westminster fire department in 1950, and became a captain after 18 years. He was both Assistant Chief and Deputy Chief before he retired in 1986. Fulton worked at all the fire halls in the city, but spent most of his time at the #1 hall downtown. When he was not at work, Fulton managed the Salmonbellies, the New Westminster lacrosse team, who took the 1958, 1959, and 1962 Canadian Championship titles. He served as vice-president and president of the Canadian Lacrosse Association for several years, and continues to be involved in the New Westminster team. After having lived in New Westminster for over 80 years, Fulton is tightly connected to his community and appreciates the changes that he is seeing to the downtown area and the access to the waterfront. Fulton offers strong opinions about female and non-European descent fire fighters.The interview was conducted as part of History 461 – Oral History Practicum at Simon Fraser University
