TORONTO, June 4, 2013 /CNW/ - Darlene Bryans of McDonald's Oakville will
receive a Fire Safety Award from the Fire Marshal's Public Fire Safety
Council at a ceremony on June 12, 2013 in Toronto. The annual Fire
Safety Awards recognize outstanding contributions to fire protection
and prevention in Ontario.
For the past 14 years, Oakville Fire Department has hosted a special
event at its training campus during Fire Prevention Week, where
community residents can meet the firefighters, view the equipment and
participate in a host of fire safety learning activities.

in Oakville, provides food for the event, as well as some of her
employees to serve it. During the event, she and her staff prepare and
distribute lunches to more than 3,000 visitors. Bryans also advertises
the event each year in her five Oakville restaurant locations through
tray liners, posters and invitations to customers.
"Thanks to the generous support of Darlene Bryans, Oakville Fire
Department is able to focus its efforts on delivering its important
messages about public fire safety," said Ted Wieclawek, Ontario Fire
Marshal and Chair, Fire Marshal's Public Fire Safety Council.
