Murray Jones and Douro-Dummer Deputy Fire Chief Derrick Huffman at Douro-Dummer Fire Station 5.

“At Enbridge Gas, safety is our priority. We’re proud to support Ontario firefighters who share our commitment to keeping our communities safe,” said Steve McGivery, Director, GTA East Operations, Enbridge Gas Inc.

This year’s $100,000 donation from Enbridge Gas will be shared by 20 Ontario fire departments, including Douro-Dummer Fire Services. Funds will be used to purchase educational materials for firefighters to enhance life-saving techniques. Since the launch of Project Assist in 2012, 174 grants have been provided to Ontario fire departments for additional firefighter training.

“Project Assist improves access to training materials for municipal fire departments,” said Jon Pegg, Ontario Fire Marshal and Chief, Emergency Management. “Firefighting can be dangerous and unpredictable, and these training materials positively contribute to the health and safety of firefighters and the broader community.”

“With the numerous resources available today, this is an exceptional opportunity for us to acquire the quality materials offered by Project Assist to help guide and shape our training programs to be the best they can be!” says Fire Chief Chuck Pedersen.

“We are so grateful for Enbridge Gas Inc. to continue to support programs like Project Assist for departments like ours! We value our Volunteer Fire Department and appreciate this opportunity to obtain these kind of resources,” says Douro-Dummer Mayor, J. Murray Jones.
