ROXUL puts fire prevention first as platinum sponsor of The Fire Marshal's Public Fire Safety Council and the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs

MILTON, ON, May 28, 2013 /CNW/ - ROXUL is proud to announce a platinum level sponsorship with The Fire Marshal's Public Fire Safety Council and the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs. This partnership's focus is on community safety. The campaign "Swing Into Summer Safety" kicked off today with the Toronto Blue Jays.

Recognized today on the field for this new partnership, Trent Ogilvie, ROXUL's President accepted a plaque from the Council and Toronto Blue Jays for their recent sponsor partnership. ROXUL is committed to working with associations to further improve the lives of community members.

"It truly is an honour to be recognized by both the Council and Association. ROXUL is excited to be a part of such a tremendous effort in fire prevention and education," said Trent Ogilvie, ROXUL President. "It was just incredible to be on the field at today's Jays game in front of thousands of supporters and children from all over Ontario. They were all there to kick-off the Swing Into Summer Safety with the Toronto Blue Jays."

The Fire Marshal's Public Fire Safety Council in alliance with the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs are diligent collaborators in supporting the grass roots educational efforts of the more than 120,000 men and women representing the Canadian Fire Services. The resulting campaigns and initiatives help drive fire and safety awareness and emergency preparedness that can make the difference between life and death in a crisis situation. Two of the most important messages firefighters strive to reach out to people with are the importance of having working smoke alarms throughout the home and preparing and practicing a home fire escape plan.

"ROXUL is proud to partner with both the Fire Marshal's Public Fire Safety Council and the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs. We believe in their efforts and want to support their initiatives for overall community safety and fire prevention," said Trent Ogilvie, ROXUL President. "Too many lives are lost due to preventable house fires. Through this partnership we hope to build awareness and to educate community members on fire prevention and the need to have a fire escape plan."

"The Council is happy to have ROXUL as our newest partner to further enhance fire safety," said Tadeusz (Ted) Wieclawek, Chair, Fire Marshal's Public Safety Council. "We look forward to cultivating this partnership as it will be a significant addition to reaching community residents in Ontario - and our fire safety partners across the country."
