Fire Prevention Week

In a fire, seconds count.  Seconds can mean the difference between residents of our community escaping safely from a fire or having their lives end in tragedy.  Please visit the link below to learn more about keeping your family safe.

Fire Prevention Week has been recognized since 1925 and is held annually during the Sunday through Saturday period in which October 9 falls.  During this time our fire service will be visiting elementary schools in Medicine Hat to educate K-3 students on fire safety and encourage them to spend a few minutes talking about fire safety with their family this week.
