Serving Since:

Corey Berg was born June 10, 1961. In March of 1987, he became a member of the Churchbridge Volunteer Fire Brigade. He maintained his status as a firefighter until he was unable to remain an active member in 2009. During these years, Corey held the position of treasurer within the department. He was a very instrumental part of the team, especially when it came to fundrasing for the department. If there was a buck to be found, he knew where it was and just how he would get it for the department. He also was our Training Officer for a few years and loved to help out the rookies and share with them his knowledge, along with many practical jokes. In October 2009, he was awarded the Exemplary Service Medal for having over 20 years of service.

Before Joining the Fire Department, Corey was active as an ambulance attendant for the health dristrict and along with others, manned the ambulance stationed in Churchbridge. He stayed active with the service long after he became a firefighter. He maintained skills as a first responder after the ambulance was moved to Langenburg by the health district. Corey was very active in protective services until his health prevented him from doing so.

With his wife by his side, Corey answered his "Last Alarm" in the early morning hours of February 28, 2010
