TORONTO, June 19, 2012 /CNW/ - Brenda Folz 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.
Folz is the Marketing Director for the New Sudbury Centre, which is
Sudbury's largest and busiest mall. During Fire Prevention Week last
year, Folz permitted the Greater Sudbury Fire Services to set up their
awareness campaign materials in the centre court of the mall for the
entire week. To assist with the initiative, Folz enlisted mall staff
to help with setting up and dismantling the campaign displays.
Additionally, Folz has also provided the fire department with free
space in the mall to sell its firefighter calendar, proceeds from which
support various fire department activities and charities throughout the
Folz's contributions to fire safety don't end there. She was the driving
force behind the New Sudbury Centre's $15,000 sponsorship of a CTV
public service announcement (PSA) campaign that ran for an entire year.
As a result of this sponsorship over 400, 30-second fire safety PSAs
were broadcast throughout Northern Ontario.
"Brenda has become the go-to resource for the Greater Sudbury Fire
Services, whose public education programs have benefited greatly from
her marketing skills and expertise," said Ted Wieclawek, Ontario Fire
