Fire Prevention Week is October 7-13, 2018

Look for places fire could start.

Listen for the sound of the smoke alarm.

Learn two ways out of every room.

Fire Prevention Week Activities

  • Fire fighters conducted fire drills at 38 Saanich schools. 4,200 staff and students learned what to do in a fire, how to respond to the sound of a fire alarm and where to meet up after an evacuation.
  • Fire fighters delivered activity booklets to all Saanich kindergarten through Grade 3 students to learn about preventing home fires and escape planning with their family. 
  • Community information booths were held at Tillicum Mall and Uptown Plaza - many fire prevention activity books and brochures were given out. 
  • Families with young children were able to build and paint a fire boat at Home Depot Day with our fire fighters. Mark your calendar for next year!
