Swing into Summer Safety
Who better to help promote safety to children than our own boys of summer – the Toronto Blue Jays!
The Fire Marshal's Public Fire Safety Council and its Sponsors, along with participating Fire Departments with the support of the Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management, is pleased to partner with the Toronto Blue Jays to bring its "Swing into Summer Safety" campaign to communities across the province.
This important safety initiative is all about educating and raising awareness with school-age children and their families about fire safety and other preventable injuries.
This baseball season, watch out for exciting community events hosted by local participating fire departments, as well as fun in-stadium activities at the Rogers Centre in Toronto.
