TORONTO, June 19, 2012 /CNW/ - TVCOGECO Sarnia 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
Recognizing the importance of fire safety, TVCOGECO Sarnia has always
responded to Sarnia Fire & Rescue Services' requests to promote fire
safety in the station's programming. For the past eight years, the
fire department has been greatly assisted in their public education
efforts by the television station.
During Ontario Hockey League (OHL) game broadcasts, the Wright to the Point talk show and other programs, the station has run public service
announcements provided by the fire department. Over the holiday season,
the fire department compiled holiday fire safety messages and these
were also broadcast during OHL games. In addition, TVCOGECO Sarnia
spent a day at the fire department and prepared a segment on a day in
the life of a firefighter, which also aired on their local station.
"The people of Sarnia and surrounding communities benefit greatly from
TVCOGECO Sarnia's commitment of time and resources to further the cause
of fire safety," said Ted Wieclawek, Ontario Fire Marshal.
The Fire Marshal's Public Fire Safety Council gratefully acknowledges
