The company is providing donations to a number of local and regional fire departments this year from its Safe Community Project Assistance program. Enbridge Gas representative Rick Gazda presented Mayor Yves Laviolette and Deputy Fire Chief Stéphane Barbarie with a cheque for $5000 from the program.
“Definitely any money helps,” said Mayor Laviolette.
“We are happy to get this generous donation,” said Deputy Fire Chief Barbarie.
The Safe Community Project Assistance program provides money to community fire departments to help supplement their training program needs for new and veteran firefighters. The money that Alfred-Plantagenet Township Fire Department received will go towards the purchase of training manuals to help its members better prepare for both usual and unusual situations they may encounter during a call-out. The money will also help cover the costs for other training resources for the department.
