Vankleek Hill Volunteer Firefighters were joined by the mayor (Gary Barton) and Enbridge Gas representative Rick Gazda, along with John Doucet from the Office of the Ontario Fire Marshal, to accept the smoke/CO2 alarms presented to the community by Enbridge Gas as part of the company's Project Zero initiative.

Enbridge donates 120 smoke/CO2 alarms to Champlain Township

Enbridge Gas Distribution has been visiting municipalities in the region and last Wednesday, made a stop at the Bruce Barton Fire Hall to donate 120 smoke/CO2 alarms as part of Project Zero — a public education campaign which is providing more than 6,600 alarms to residents in 30 Ontario municipalities. The value of the 120 alarms presented in Vankleek hill was $8,900; the entire initiative has a value of $200,000.

The alarms will be distributed to residents in Champlain Township, according to District 1 Fire Chief, Michel Martin.

Since 2009, 34,384 alarms have been provided to Ontario fire departments as part of Project Zero.

Carbon monoxide is a toxic, odorless gas that is a byproduct of incomplete combustion of many types of common fuels. It is important that all fuel-burning equipment be properly maintained to prevent carbon monoxide buildup. Carbon monoxide alarms are recommended as a second line of defense to protect against the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning.
