Thousands of school children from across the greater Toronto area and Ontario will attend the special home game of the Toronto Blue Jays May 31, marked as Fire Safety Day, part of the “Swing into Summer Safety” campaign. The Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council and its sponsors, along with participating fire departments and the support of the Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management are pleased to partner with the Toronto Blue Jays on this campaign.
The first 25,000 kids attending the game will receive a special edition baseball collector card deck, showcasing their favorite Toronto Blue Jays players.
Pre-game activities outside the Rogers Centre include opportunities to speak to firefighters. Exciting prize drawings will also be held during the game–which is against the Cincinnati Reds– and the kids will get a chance to hang out with Sparky the Fire Dog® and Ace, the Toronto Blue Jays crazy mascot.
“Swing into Summer Safety” is about educating and raising awareness among school-age children and their families about fire safety and other injury prevention.
Game time is 12:37 p.m.
