Whitby Fire receives $16,000 donation from Firehouse Subs

Whitby Fire and Emergency Services received a donation of more than $16,000 from the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation of Canada.

Mayor Don Mitchell, Members of Council and Whitby Fire Chief Dave Speed were pleased to accept this donation on August 15.

The funds received will support the purchase of more than 120 new particulate blocking flash hoods that will enhance the safety of Whitby firefighters when responding to emergency calls.

The hoods, also known as Balaclavas, are a protective barrier that firefighters place over their heads and under their helmets when entering a fire environment. The new hoods provide protection against air contaminants often found in fires.
