Keeping residents safe is at the top of the list for the Whitchurch-Stouffville Fire and Emergency Services team.
Thanks to a grant from Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation of Canada, the WSFES team is now even better equipped.
The $14,977.45 grant was used to purchase an inflatable fire safety education house fulfilling a critical need within the community. The house is also accessible for people with disabilities.
“We are committed to helping organizations such as Whitchurch-Stouffville Fire and Emergency Services continue their lifesaving work within local communities. We are honored to be able to award this grant and do our part to ensure that the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville is safer for everyone, including first responders,” said Robin Peters, executive director, Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation of Canada.
The inflatable fire safety education house will be used to provide an interactive fun fire safety learning experience for the whole community.
Focusing on planning your escape during a fire, the house will help educate the community on smoke alarms, candles, kitchen safety, space heaters and more.
