Imagine zipping around town in a car that makes a statement. That’s what members of Whitby Fire and Emergency Services in Ontario get to do with their new fire safety vehicle. Just in time for Fire Prevention Week, OWASCO car dealership donated the 2015 Volkswagen Beetle all decked out in fire safety messaging featuring Sparky the Fire Dog®

Whitby Mayor Don Mitchell (right) was on hand for the ribbon cutting. The vehicle will be featured at community education displays at two Home Depot locations, a presentation at the Whitby Seniors’ Activity Centre, story time with Fire Chief Dave Speed at the Brooklin Branch Library, and an open house at fire department headquarters.
