Mississauga, Ontario – Mitsubishi Motor Sales Of Canada Inc. (MMSCAN) announced that it will donate 15 vehicles to support Canadian teaching facilities across the country.

The announcement was made during a ceremony at the Alberta Vehicle Extrication Association’s (AVEA) head office in Calgary where Mitsubishi presented AVEA with a 2008 Lancer sedan. AVEA is one of the organizations in Canada that will receive a vehicle for training purposes, where it will be used for teaching firefighters in roadside rescue missions.

Randy Schmitz, Alberta Chair for AVEA was on hand to receive the keys to a 2008 Lancer from Peter Boutros, Manager, Technical Services for MMSCAN. “Receiving this vehicle will enable all of us to simulate real life road accidents, test our knowledge and to learn additional life saving skills,” said Schmitz. “We’ll share this valuable information with other fire departments, where it will be applied to help save lives in the real world.”

Additional organizations that will be receiving one or more vehicles include, the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT), Red Deer College, Centennial College, Mohawk College, Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and the Ontario Police College.
