PELHAM, Ontario (Nov. 21, 2016)—Pelham Fire Chief Bob Lymburner and Mayor Dave Augustyn accepted a $12,000 donation from Enbridge to help enhance emergency communications equipment for Pelham Fire Services.
“We are pleased to receive this generous donation from Enbridge to help upgrade some of our emergency communications equipment,” said Pelham Fire Chief Bob Lymburner. “We are proud of the service we provide to our community and this will help further our emergency response activities.”
Funding is provided as part of Enbridge’s Safe Community Program, which offers financial support to first responders and safety-driven organizations to acquire new equipment, obtain professional training or deliver educational programs. Since its inception in 2002, the program has contributed approximately $9.3 million in funding to organizations across North America.
“The Town of Pelham’s efforts to update and modernize its emergency communications systems will contribute to a safer community for everyone,” said Brent Bullough, Community Engagement Advisor with Enbridge. “We are honoured to assist equipping Pelham’s front-line responders with reliable means of communication during emergencies.”
