The Jim Copeland Award is given every year province-wide to a group, business, or individual that has spent a significant amount of time working to prevent fires through educating others, their own safety practices and more. This award is given at the Ontario Municipal Fire Prevention Officers Association’s annual Symposium.

DKI-CRCS was nominated by Oshawa Fire Services, and awarded this great honour because of the hard work spent dedicated to making others aware of the dangers fires present, and how to prevent them.

Being in the business for the past 20 years, DKI-CRCS has worked diligently to spread the word on fire prevention. Through thousands of magnets, a fire and smoke damaged kitchen display for the Oshawa Fire Prevention Week for the past ten years, and the distribution of 9,000 booklets titled Alarmed for Life, outlining fire safety, we have worked to lower the likelihood of fires across the province.

Cris Douglas, the Founder and President of DKI-CRCS was honoured to accept the award for his company. He noted how the years in his position have helped him gain a feeling of civic pride and honour. The hardworking staff that stands behind him helped to make those in the community safer from preventable home fires.

CRCS is proud to have received such a prestigious award, and will continue working to inform members of the community on the proper steps to fire safety. Thank you to the Oshawa Fire Department, whose work has significantly reduced the number of fires every year in the past, and will continue to do so in the future.
