TransCanada Pipelines contributes $30,000 to emergency preparedness


Chris McDonough, Fire Chief for South Dundas Fire and Emergency Services recently requested funding from TransCanada Pipelines, and was excited to see that result in a donation of $30,000 from the company.

These funds will be used for emergency generators at the fire stations.

“This donation will finalize our goal to have generators at the three fire stations,” said McDonough. 

“This couldn’t have been accomplished without this donation, for which I am very thankful,” he added.

“I appreciate TransCanada Pipelines working with our community,” said South Dundas mayor Steven Byvelds. “This gives us a step forward in being prepared for an emergency.”

TransCanada has a long-standing history of supporting local communities. 

“I’m happy to work for a company that helps out,” said Sean McCann, TransCanada Pipeline technician from the Zeron Road Station.
