Local Business Support Grant – Featured Recipient: Associated Fire Safety
In response to the challenges of COVID-19, the Burnaby Board of Trade launched a grant program to support our members that was unprecedented amongst chambers of commerce and boards of trade. Funded and administered directly by the BBOT, the Local Business Support Grant sought to help our local members invest in new equipment, education or other resources to support their businesses through this next phase of the pandemic, and position themselves for a stronger recovery. Read our features on some of the businesses who participated in this program:
This week’s featured Local Business Support Grant recipient is: Associated Fire Safety
From their facilities here in Burnaby, Associated Fire Safety supplies and services the many products needed by Fire and Rescue Services across Western Canada, including fire boots, firehoses, uniforms, extraction tools and much more.
With support from the Burnaby Board of Trade’s Local Business Support Grant, Associated Fire Safety was able to secure additional equipment for use in their business line which offers repairs and maintenance for the protective gear used by fire departments to keep their members save when responding to structure fires, wildfires, and other fire-related incidents. With this new equipment, the company was able to expand this part of their business, servicing more customers and hiring an additional staff member!
