Enbridge Gas Incorporated is helping Elliot Lake Fire Service purchase firefighting training materials.
Company operations supervisor for the Northern Region, Brad Taylor, says the materials are being provided through the Safe Community Project Assist.
He adds the program is provided through the Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council that supplements existing training for Ontario volunteer and composite fire departments in the communities where Enbridge Gas operates.
Jon Pegg, Ontario Fire Marshal adds firefighting can be dangerous and unpredictable, and the training materials positively contribute to the health and safety of firefighters and the broader community.
Elliot Lake Fire Chief John Thomas says the funds are part of updating training opportunities with his staff and thanked the company for its support.
