Norwich Fire Service Receives A $5,000 Donation From Enbridge Gas

The money comes from the Project Assist program. The funds will be used to buy materials for firefighters to enhance life-saving techniques.

TOWNSHIP OF NORWICH - Enbridge Gas has donated $5,000 to the Norwich Fire Service.

The money will be used to buy firefighting training materials, through a Project Assist program. The program supplements existing training for Ontario volunteer and composite fire departments in the communities where Enbridge operates.

Director of Southeast Region Operations for Enbridge Gas says they are donating $100,000 that will be shared by 20 Ontario fire departments, including Norwich. 

“At Enbridge Gas, safety is our priority. We’re proud to support Ontario firefighters who share our commitment to keeping our communities safe.”

Since the launch of Project Assist in 2012, 194 grants have been provided to Ontario fire departments for additional firefighter training. Ontario Fire Marshal Jon Pegg says the money has been put to good use.

“Project Assist improves access to training materials for fire departments. Firefighting can be dangerous and unpredictable, and these training materials positively contribute to the health and safety of firefighters and the
broader community.”

Norwich Fire Chief Paul Groeneveld says the money will be used to purchase educational materials for firefighters to enhance life-saving techniques.

“Project Assist will benefit firefighters of the Norwich Fire Service by assisting in the purchase of training materials for aerial apparatus operations, NFPA exam preparation, officer development, hazardous material response and other key firefighting areas."
