TORONTO, June 4, 2013 /CNW/ - Moya Dillon of the Pickering News
Advertiser 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.
Dillon is a dedicated media partner who champions the cause of fire
safety in Pickering. Dillon never fails to attend and participate in
public events hosted by Pickering Fire Services. She is more than happy
to cover key public education initiatives, such as Swing into Summer Safety and the 12 Days of Holiday Safety. Her coverage of fires always includes a fire prevention message so
that residents can learn from the unfortunate incident. In addition,
articles related to important topics such as smoke alarms, home fire
escape planning and fire safety during power outages are regularly
published. In the past year alone, at least 21 articles written by
Dillon related to fire department activities have been published online
on durhamregion.com, and in print in the Pickering News Advertiser.
"For Moya, covering fire safety issues is not merely part of the job;
she is genuinely passionate and concerned about the subject, which is
evident in her enthusiastic support of all things related to the fire
department," said Ted Wieclawek, Ontario Fire Marshal and Chair, Fire
Marshal's Public Fire Safety Council. "Pickering Fire Services is
fortunate to have a committed advocate to help them reach the people of
their community with fire safety messages."

the support of its sponsors in this event: Technical Standards and
Safety Authority, The Co-operators Group, Kidde Canada Inc., Home Depot
of Canada Inc., Proctor & Gamble Inc., Electrical Safety Authority, CSA
