OPG, OPP Television Ads make strong point: Safety. It's no mystery.
TORONTO, Feb. 14 /CNW/ - Ontario Power Generation (OPG) and the Ontario
Provincial Police (OPP) today launched the latest in their popular
water safety ads.
"Today is Valentine's Day and next Monday is Family Day. This is the
perfect time to think about the people who matter to us," says John
Murphy, OPG's Executive Vice President Hydro. "Our ads take a
light-hearted approach, but they've got a strong message about
"Whether you're out on your sled, or just taking a walk, a few simple
precautions can prevent a major tragedy. Some areas of the province are
getting a thaw this week, which can make ice unstable, especially near
dams and rivers. People should always keep safety in mind any time
they are on or near the water," says Murphy.
"The ads are focused on hydro facilities, but snowmobilers need to be
aware that no ice is 100 per cent safe, says OPP Staff Sergeant Chris
Whaley. "It's not a mystery; a minimum of six inches of clear, hard ice
is needed to support a snowmobile. If you're on a snowmobile, stay on
clearly marked trails."
Murphy noted that OPG partners with organizations such as the Ontario
Provincial Police (OPP), and Boating Ontario to help deliver this
strong safety message around the province.
OPG provides a variety of water safety materials, including a brochure
and DVD at www.opg.com.
