Windsor Spitfires Hockey Club to receive Fire Safety Award



    TORONTO, June 20 /CNW/ - The Windsor Spitfires Hockey Club will receive a
Fire Safety Partner Award from the Fire Marshal's Public Fire Safety Council
at a ceremony on June 28, 2007 in Toronto. The annual Fire Safety Awards
recognize outstanding contributions to fire protection and prevention in
Ontario.
    Since 1998, the Windsor Spitfires have been co-hosting the Fire
Prevention Week Kick Off Dinner with Windsor Fire & Emergency Service. This
event sees a Windsor Spitfire hockey player and a firefighter hosting
individual tables to raise awareness about fire prevention and to kick-off the
week of events.
    In addition to co-hosting this event, the Windsor Spitfires have invited
Windsor Fire & Emergency Service to be part of their education event Reading
is Fun. It takes place at a Windsor library and focuses on hockey players
reading books to young children while the firefighters and public education
officer talk to the children about fire safety.
    "This partnership demonstrates the importance of positive role models in
children's lives," said Ontario Fire Marshal Pat Burke. "The Windsor Spitfires
Hockey Club is helping the community understand the importance of fire and
life safety."
    Fire departments throughout the province nominated individuals and
organizations for this year's awards; 21 recipients were selected. The
Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services Monte Kwinter and Fire
Marshal Burke will present the awards at a luncheon ceremony at the Fairmont
Royal York Hotel in Toronto.
