Comox firefighters purchase speed signs for Brooklyn School

The Comox Firefighters Association have made another generous donation to their community. They have recently donated $2,000 as partial costs for two new speed indicating signs installed need Brooklyn School in Comox.

“I am so proud of our firefighters for their support of so many important projects in our community,” said Comox Fore Rescue Chief Gord Schreiner. “These speed control signs have proven to reduce speeds in the areas they are used. Reducing speeds makes it safer for all of the road user in that area.”

Funds for projects like this come from small surpluses from the Comox Fire Training Centre, which is used by hundreds of visiting firefighters every year. Over the past few years the Comox firefighters have donated more than $100,000 back into their community, including supporting the purchase of more than 30 public use automatic external defibrillators.
