Union Gas Supports Safety By Providing $1,500 to Lambton Shores Fire Service For Purchase of Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms

Forest, ON, March 7, 2016 - Union Gas supports Lambton Shores Fire Department with a $1,500 grant for the purchase of smoke and carbon monoxide alarms for their safety awareness program.

"At Union Gas, safety governs everything we do, whether we are building a pipeline or installing a gas meter at your home," said Greg Wagner, utility services manager, Union Gas. "Because of our safety culture, we make it a priority to support our local communities and much-needed programs like this one, helping keep Lambton Shores' residences safe."

The Lambton Shores Fire Service is made up of 5 stations in the communities of Forest, Arkona, Thedford, Northville, and Grand Bend.  Each of these stations promotes public education and fire safety awareness in their service area.  Providing modern carbon monoxide and smoke detectors in situations of need is a key aspect of this program.

"This generous donation from Union Gas will help to strengthen our community outreach and fire prevention program," said Doug Cook, Deputy Mayor, Lambton Shores. "Working together we are better equipped to keep our community informed and safe."
