Ontario Invests to Help Municipal Fire Services during COVID-19

The Ontario Government announced an investment of $5 million to help municipal fire services address the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The funding will enhance fire safety training across the province and support safety inspection programs to ensure compliance with the Ontario Fire Code.

It is with great enthusiasm that I thank our firefighting teams who are frontline workers in keeping us safe in Simcoe North.  The Town of Midland, City of Orillia, Town of Penetanguishene, Ramara Township, Tay Township and Tiny Township Fire Services will all receive funding, a total combined investment of $49,100 for Simcoe North.
