As an International Fire Safety Ambassador, Peter Benninger, President and Broker of Record, has been recognized for using his personal and professional influence to move the importance of fire safety to the forefront.

Every few years, Coldwell Banker Peter Benninger Realty creates a Street Map and Service Guide where proceeds are used to fund an educational product for the Kitchener and Waterloo Fire Departments.
The Map Project, now in its 8th edition, has helped finance the interactive Fire Safety Education Van, as well as the original and new Fire Safety Houses, integral components of the local Fire Safety Program. The Map has also funded two training vehicles used by the Fire Safety Officers to carry equipment to and from their many instructional, public education and awareness events, two Portable Fire Extinguisher Training Units, and the Kitchen Fire Simulator, a visually stunning simulator that is used for live demonstrations throughout the region.
Other significant contributions Coldwell Banker Peter Benninger Realty makes annually are to events put on by Heartwood Place, a charitable organization dedicated to providing safe, affordable and adequate housing in the Region; as well as Kitchener Waterloo’s Oktoberfest, including participating in the parade and sponsoring a band that proceeds the Coldwell Banker Peter Benninger Realty Fire Safety Fleet.
