SickKids Burn Prevention Outreach Team to Receive Fire Safety Award

TORONTO, June 16, 2014 /CNW/ - The SickKids Burn Prevention Outreach Team will receive a Fire Safety Award from the Fire Marshal's Public Fire Safety Council at a ceremony on June 19, 2014 in Toronto. The annual Fire Safety Awards recognize outstanding contributions to fire protection and prevention in Ontario.

The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto is dedicated to providing family-centred, compassionate care to some of Ontario's most vulnerable residents. The SickKids Burn Prevention Outreach Team knows all too well the devastation and suffering caused by fire and so is a staunch supporter of burn prevention and awareness in the community.

The SickKids Burn Prevention Outreach Team's ongoing commitment to fire safety includes public awareness campaigns with literature, posters, flyers and website postings. Each year during Fire Prevention Week, the Team participates in Toronto Fire Services' open house, staffing an engaging and interactive display to promote fire safety, burn prevention and treatment. They have also teamed up with Toronto Fire Services in other safety campaigns such as Cool Your Coals, to promote camp fire safety.

"There is no question that the professional and enthusiastic support of the SickKids Burn Prevention Outreach Team has helped to increase public awareness about the risk of burns and scalds," said Ted Wieclawek, Chair, Fire Marshal's Public Fire Safety Council. "The result of their efforts is a safer environment at home, work and play for people of all ages."

The Fire Marshal's Public Fire Safety Council gratefully acknowledges the support of its sponsors in this event: TD Bank Group, Toronto Blue Jays, Union Gas Limited/ A Spectra Energy Company, Technical Standards & Safety Authority - TSSA, Enbridge Gas Distribution Inc. Proctor & Gamble Inc., Electrical Safety Authority, CSA Group, The Co-operators Group, Kidde Canada Inc., Roxul Inc. and The Home Depot.
