Town of Meaford “Do Not Consume” Advisory Leads to Generous CBO Water Donation

CBO acknowledged and extended a special thanks to all of the CBO employees and other volunteers from the Meaford community who stepped up to lend a hand when the town was put under a limited water use direction in May 2023. On May 25th, a fire broke out at a used car dealership and auto shop and due to the amount of POL (petroleum, oils, and lubricants) products and other contaminants on site, the town was under a “Do Not Consume” advisory for municipal water, along with an advisory to not swim in Georgian Bay. Over several days a number of CBO staff from our 4th Canadian Division Training Centre (CDTC) Meaford site volunteered to assist with bottled water distribution at the community centre, and CBO donated water to the municipality. The “Do Not Consume” and other advisories were lifted after a series of tests over 72 hours showed that water quality had met provincial standards. Thank you to everyone who helped!

CBO Green Shirt Day Participation Actively Supports Organ Donor Awareness

At our NFTC 15 Wing Moose Jaw site on April 7, 2023, CBO team members proudly participated in the Fifth Annual Green Shirt Day to promote the Logan Boulet Effect in support of organ donor awareness/registration across Canada. Green Shirt Day was created to honour, remember, and recognize all the victims and families of the Humboldt Broncos fatal crash and to continue Logan’s legacy by inspiring Canadians to talk to their families and register as organ donors. Green is the official colour of organ/tissue donation, symbolizing the hope organ donors provide to patients in need. In Canada, almost 90% of Canadians say they support organ donation, but only 32% have registered their intent to donate. Though donation rates have improved over the last ten years, there is more to be done as approximately 250 Canadians die annually waiting for an organ transplant. Well done team for taking part and showing your team spirit in support of such an important initiative.
