Annual Events and Activities

May 1-7 - Emergency Preparedness Week is an annual event that takes place each year during the first full week of May. This national event is coordinated by Public Safety Canada, in close collaboration with the provinces, territories and partners. During Emergency Preparedness Week, activities are organized across Canada to raise awareness of the importance of having: 1) An emergency kit 2) Making an emergency plan 3) Identifying risks in the region. These three simple steps can help Canadians prepare for all types of emergencies.

July - Home Smoke Alarm Canvass - Our firefighters, from all eight city fire stations, conduct their annual home inspection program. This year's emphasis will be on smoke alarm compliance and fire escape plans.

The start date for the 2019 program will be in July, and it should be completed by September.

October 9-15 - Fire Prevention Week - This year's theme “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety!” works to educate everyone about the different sounds the smoke and carbon monoxide alarms make.
