TORONTO, June 19, 2012 /CNW/ - Foley Restoration Disaster Kleenup will
receive a Fire Safety Award from the Fire Marshal's Public Fire Safety
Council at a ceremony on June 26, 2012 in Toronto. The annual Fire
Safety Awards recognize outstanding contributions to fire protection
and prevention in Ontario.
Based in Schomberg, Foley Restoration Disaster Kleenup has been
servicing York Region and the surrounding area for the past 20 years.
When King Fire & Emergency Services was seeking donations for the
purchase of a fire safety trailer, it approached Foley Restoration to
see if they would be interested in contributing. Without hesitation,
the family-owned business donated the entire purchase price of $7,000.
The fire safety trailer is a key component of the fire department's
public education activities. It is a regular feature at community
events and makes annual visits to every elementary school in the
Region. The trailer has helped King Fire & Emergency Services to reach
more than 2,000 children with important fire safety information about
home escape planning, fire prevention and working smoke alarms.
"Thanks to the generosity of Foley Restoration Disaster Kleenup, the
Township of King has a valuable new tool that will help to educate
residents throughout York Region for years to come," said Ted
Wieclawek, Ontario Fire Marshal.
The Fire Marshal's Public Fire Safety Council gratefully acknowledges
the support of its sponsors in this event: Technical Standards and
Safety Authority, The Co-operators Group, Kidde Canada Inc., Home Depot
of Canada Inc., Proctor & Gamble Inc., Domino's Pizza of Canada,
Electrical Safety Authority, Canadian Standards Association Group and
Enbridge Gas Distribution.
