St. Anne man is paying tribute to firefighters with specially wrapped truck
Lee Provost - Daily Journal
Dylan Mercier has had a life-long love for firefighters, in particular the St. Anne Fire Protection District where he has served as a paid on-call member of the force for the past few years.
A member of the force since the age of 14 when he was part of the cadet program, the soon-to-be-20-year-old so loves the force and its mission that he recently had his 18-wheeler, a 2005 Mack truck and trailer, decked out in a fire-themed wrap from Fastlane Wraps of Chebanse.
“Dad’s been in the fire service for a long time,” Mercier said of this father, Ralph. “It just flows through my blood. I guess I’m carrying on the tradition.”
That fact makes his father very happy and proud of his son. Ralph Mercier, 55, served from 1984-2011 on the Papineau Fire Department and then from 2011 to present on St. Anne’s force.
Ralph noted at first Dylan was initially thinking of having just the cab wrapped.
“I told him if we are going to do this, then it’s going to be done right,” he said, referring to both the truck and trailer. “It came out very nice. I’m very happy with it,” Ralph said.
