The program supplements existing training for Ontario volunteer and composite fire departments in the communities where Enbridge operates.

A recent donation to the Collingwood Fire Department will support firefighter training.

The money is being provided by Enbridge Gas Inc. through Project Assist - a program that supplements existing training for Ontario volunteer and composite fire departments in the communities where Enbridge operates.

This year’s $100,000 donation will be shared by 20 Ontario fire departments, including Collingwood Fire Department.

Funds will be used to purchase educational materials for firefighters to enhance life-saving techniques.

Since the launch of Project Assist in 2012, 174 grants have been provided to Ontario fire departments for additional firefighter training.
