Once again this summer, the Toronto Blue Jays are proud to partner on the 2nd annual “Swing into Summer Safety” campaign, organized by the Ontario Fire Marshal’s Office and Fire Safety Council to bring awareness to fire safety. This campaign aims to educate children with safety tips through the distribution of baseball cards featuring the 2012 Blue Jays players and coaches. The first 25,000 fans to enter Rogers Centre on June 13th to watch the Toronto Blue Jays host the Washington Nationals at 12:37 pm will receive a free set of Toronto Blue Jays fire safety cards.
The educational campaign will kick off on Tuesday May 29th when Blue Jays pitcher Jason Frasor along with team President and CEO Paul Beeston visit Toronto Fire Station #333. Also on hand for the campaign to educate school-aged children will be Ontario Fire Marshal Ted Wieclawek, Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs President Kevin Foster and Toronto Fire Services Acting Fire Chief Ron Jenkins.
“The Toronto Blue Jays are pleased to continue our partnership with the brave men and women of the Ontario Fire Services on a campaign that educates and reinforces the importance of fire safety awareness for youth and families.”
– Paul Beeston, President and CEO, Toronto Blue Jays
