CALGARY, Oct. 8, 2014 /CNW/ - For the fourth year in a row, Pembina Pipeline Corporation ("Pembina" or the "Company") (TSX: PPL; NYSE: PBA) announced plans to support volunteer fire departments in the Company's operating communities. This announcement is made in the spirit of Fire Prevention Week October 5 -11, 2014 - a nation-wide initiative aimed at raising fire safety awareness.
This year, Pembina will invest a total of $75,000, which will be divided between 23 volunteer fire departments in communities across the Company's operations. Pembina's donation will support the purchase of new equipment and/or safety training.
"It's a natural fit for Pembina to support volunteer fire departments since safety and emergency response preparedness is a top priority for us," explains Martin Clough, Senior Manager, Safety, Security & ERP for Pembina Pipeline Corporation. "As a responsible operator, having both the right equipment and necessary training is the foundation of safety planning. As a result, we are committed to helping ensure volunteer departments in communities in which we operate have the resources they need to respond effectively."
Pembina's community investment program supports non-profit and charitable organizations that are based in, or support, the communities where they operate. Within this framework, Pembina's investment decisions and partnerships are focused on initiatives that improve access to education, protect or preserve the environment, promote safety, create community space and encourage recreation and a healthy lifestyle.
