Optimist Club Twin Cities, Waterloo Region to receive Fire Safety Award

TORONTO, June 19, 2012 /CNW/ - Optimist Club Twin Cities, Waterloo Region 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.

The Optimist Club Twin Cities is a non-profit service club whose goal it is to "bring out the best in kids."  In the last 10 years, the Optimist Club Twin Cities has provided substantial financial assistance to Waterloo Fire Rescue's public education efforts.

A total of $50,000 has been donated to create and distribute fire safety school calendars to more than 4,000 children in Grades 1 through 4 in Waterloo. With the current financial contribution, Waterloo Fire Rescue has been able to design and print 3,600 copies of a new activity book. The books will be distributed to children at community events and during fire station tours.

"The Optimist Club Twin Cities, Waterloo Region is a committed partner to the well-being of children in the community and this has clearly been demonstrated through its consistent support of Waterloo Fire Rescue's public education programs," said Ted Wieclawek, Ontario Fire Marshal. "Thanks to their efforts, children in the City of Waterloo are being educated about the dangers of fire and learning appropriate fire safety behaviours."

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.
