South-West Oxford Fire and Emergency Services will use the $5,000 cheque to buy training manuals for its firefighters.
SOUTH-WEST OXFORD - The South-West Oxford Fire and Emergency Services received money.
Fire Chief, Rob Serson has the details.
"Representatives from Enbridge Gas and the Fire Marshalls Public Safety Council were here in South-West Oxford to present us with a cheque for $5000."
Serson goes on to say that this money will go a long way in helping train the firefighters.
"Without the help of Enbridge, we financially couldn't afford to purchase all the manuals that we would require at one time. We would have to order them over a series of years to get all the manuals we would require."
The manuals and books that are going to be ordered will train the firefighters and get them certified to code with the Office of the Fire Marshal by 2026.
Since the launch of Safe Community Project Assist in 2012, 344 grants have been provided to Ontario fire departments for additional firefighter training.
