Fire and Emergency Services in Durham Region and Kawartha Lakes have partnered with Enbridge Gas to promote Spring and Summer safety tips on local radio stations.

From May 5 – July 1, radio ads featuring representatives from Enbridge Gas and teams of public educators from local fire services departments in Durham Region and Kawartha Lakes will promote summer safety tips each weekend on KX96 New Country FM, 94.9 The Rock, 107.7 FM and 1580 AM CKDO.

This year’s campaign will include messaging from Fire Services departments in Pickering, Ajax, Brock, Clarington, Kawartha Lakes, Oshawa, Scugog, Whitby, and Uxbridge.

The radio ads will promote fire safety messages to the residents of Durham Region, as well as the surrounding communities in Ontario.

This partnership with Enbridge Gas provides important safety information during a time of year when there’s typically an increase in fire-related emergencies.

“At Enbridge Gas, we take a proactive approach to identifying and preventing safety issues,” said Steve McGivery, Director, Enbridge Gas. “We know that our municipal Fire and Emergency Services in Durham Region are committed to keeping the community safe, each and every day. This is reflected through their actions and the safety programs that they provide. We’re proud to support these efforts, including the Spring into Summer Safety radio campaign.”

The Spring into Summer Safety campaign will air on Thursdays and Fridays, with topics covered including water safety, campfires, fireworks, BBQ, and open flame appliance safety.
