Sponsorship & Donations

Sponsor a fire department or donate propane

Emergency Response Assistance Canada (ERAC), in conjunction with the Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs (OAFC), offers a comprehensive training program aimed to ensure that Canada’s first responders are prepared for incidents involving liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).

The first component of the program, LPG Firefighting Awareness online training, is offered free-of-charge by ERAC. Upon successful completion, first responders can enroll in the LPG Level 1 Mobile Operations training course. The cost of the two-day LPG Level 1 Mobile Operations training starts at $350 per student.

Plan participants can support this program by:

  • sponsoring a fire department, in their province or territory of choice, for the LPG Level 1 Mobile Operations training course. The minimum sponsorship of a fire department will be $350
  • donating propane in the form of a dollar amount or product donation and delivery, for use during the LPG Level 1 Mobile Operations training

To sponsor a fire department or donate propane for training, please contact info@erac.org or 587-349-5880.


Donations for equipment caches

ERAC is currently developing ERAC-owned equipment caches that will be strategically placed across Canada, and can be transported to any incident or training facility when needed. These caches strengthen our services for our Plan Participants, and assist local responders in communities.

Should your organization be interested in donating any new or surplus equipment that will assist with the ongoing development of these caches, it will also be eligible for a tax benefit. ERAC can issue a letter acknowledging receipt of the goods after the donation has been made; however, we are unable to issue official tax receipts as we are not a charitable organization. 

A list of needed equipment is available. If you have questions or would like to donate equipment, contact info@erac.org or 587-349-5880.
