Community Fire Safety Programs

Fires can happen anywhere. Knowing how to prevent and escape from a fire is important.

Call 9-1-1 immediately is there is an emergency and you need help.

Having a working smoke alarm on every floor of your home, and knowing two ways out of every bedroom is important.

We encourage everyone to take time and consider fire safety in their home.

View our home safety checklist or our rental unit safety checklist for more information.

Community programs

Fire station tours

Tours of the fire stations are available to school and community groups during regular office hours.

Fire safety presentations

We provide presentations to various community groups by request.

Fire extinguisher orientation

Members are available to speak to your business or organization about the safe use and operation of fire extinguishers.

Fire safety check

We can check and replace your smoke alarms, batteries, discuss your fire safety plan, and help you look for hazards that may exist in your home.

After the fire 

Firefighters go door-to-door and speak with residents after a fire in the neighbourhood. We answer questions, offer to check smoke alarms and perform a fire safety check.

Juvenile fire-setter

Playing with fire, matches and lighters is dangerous. We work with children and teens, teaching them how they can prevent fires.

Inspections

Businesses and public buildings are inspected under our quality management plan. Inspections identify issues which may contribute to the start and spread of smoke and fire.

Fire inspectors review and examine building plans, perform site inspections and consult with builders to ensure buildings to municipal servicing standards.

Investigations

Every fire or explosion which results in property damage, injury, death, and arson are investigated. An investigation begins once a fire is under control.
