Union Gas Supports Woodstock Fire Department With $1,000 Grant For Safety Awareness Programs

WOODSTOCK, ON, August 10, 2016 – Union Gas helps support the Woodstock Fire Department with a $1,000 grant to support safety awareness programs.

“At Union Gas, we are committed to the safety of our employees and our communities,” said Kevin Carr, utility service manager for Woodstock, Union Gas. “And we share that commitment by supporting programs like offered by the Woodstock Fire Department that help us all stay safer.”

The Woodstock Fire Department and its 54 members take fire prevention and education extremely seriously. New avenues are continuously explored in the community to bring awareness and to provide guidance to enhance personal safety at home and in the workplace.  For example, during Fire Prevention Week and Carbon Monoxide Week, free pizzas are delivered to homes that have working smoke alarms and CO detectors. Plans to expand include large graphic displays in high profile facilities within the community to enhance the visual connection to fire and life safety.

“Generous grants, such as the one the Woodstock Fire Department is receiving today from Union Gas reinforces the positive relationship the two organizations have and willingness to share in the promotion of community safety,” said Fire Chief Scott Tegler, City of Woodstock.
