North Grenville Fire Chief John Okum says local firefighters will be receiving some new and enhanced training soon.
Okum says the North Grenville Fire Service (NGFS) is purchasing some new educational material to help with its training process, with money donated by Enbridge Gas.
The money comes from the gas company’s Safe Community Project Assist, a program in partnership with the Fire Marshal’s Public Safety Council that helps supplement coaching for firefighters in regions Enbridge services. This year, the company donated $250,000, split between 50 fire departments across Canada.
Okum is thanking Enbridge for the donation. “Their partnership with the Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council has a direct positive impact to emergency services”.
