Quinte News

A Durham Region community has received some extra money from the province for its fire service.

Northumberland-Peterborough South MPP David Piccini has announced that Clarington Emergency and Fire Services will receive $27,000.

Piccini says the funding will enhance fire safety training and support safety inspection programs to ensure compliance with the Ontario Fire Code.

“This funding will enhance opportunities for training and support fire inspections needed to keep our communities safe. This new investment will provide the technology and equipment needed to support their operations during these unprecedented times.”

Clarington Mayor Adrian Foster adds, “We appreciate this critical funding contribution. The funding is a great example of how the province is supporting our first responders during this critical time.”

The funding is part of a $5 million provincial investment to help municipal fire services respond to the local impacts of COVID-19 which created risks and unprecedented challenges for fire departments to conduct training and fire safety inspections.
