Two College of the Rockies fire services training students are the most recent recipients of the Brandon Salviulo Memorial Bursary. The bursary, available to East or West Kootenay students enrolled in the College’s Fire Training Program, was created by the Salviulo family of Riondel in memory of their son Brandon who tragically passed away before he was able to take the program.
