Media Relations and Resources
Local media are great partners in helping the fire service deliver fire safety information in communities across the province. OFM news releases about a variety of public fire safety issues can be found at the link on the left of this page.
The OFM has developed a number of news release templates about various fire safety issues that occur at different times of the year. These templates are intended to help fire departments plan their media relations initiatives in advance of regular, recurring fire safety issues.
Templates are available here. Once you've signed in, click on the link called "News Release Templates". You can right click on the file you want to download and click on "Save Target As" to save the file to your computer.
Fire departments can add their logo, contacts and other information and send the templates to their local media as each season or event approaches to help ensure information about fire safety reaches their community year-round.
If you are a member of the media, please contact Sean Driscoll, spokesperson, at Sean.Driscoll@Ontario.ca.
