Play Safe Be Safe!
Chestermere Fire Services will be offering a Fire Education program called Play Safe Be Safe! The age group for this program will be children ages five and under. The Play Safe Be Safe program teaches children about fire safety, such as getting low under smoke, that firefighters are friends, recognizing adult tools and to stop drop and roll. The program will be offered to kindergarten and preschools in Chestermere.
The Play Safe Be Safe package contains an activity book, DVD and card games. Once the program has been completed at the school level, the Fire Department will then be contacted to book a 45 minute visit to reinforce the Play Safe Be Safe program. Chestermere Fire Services will no longer be doing Fire Hall tours for children ages five and under. Instead, the Play Safe Be Safe program will be a new fun and interactive way to teach fire safety for children under five.
Contact Chestermere Fire Services at (403) 272-9878 to get the Play Safe Be Safe package.
Fire Prevention Week
Each year in October, Chestermere Fire Services acknowledges Fire Prevention Week with fire prevention facts and tips from our Chestermere Firefighters.
After the Emergency Program
This program puts the department back into the community within 72 hours of a significant emergency event. Crews and officers will visit residents in the affected area, answering questions, addressing concerns and providing information and/or assistance with smoke alarms and fire safety.
Community Care Packs
The packs are a resource for frontline crews that support existing community programs. These packs will contain a variety of fire education and safety information, smoke alarms and batteries, home checklists, other municipal information and trauma pets. These packs provide crews with resources to assist the public when they are out in the community on other duties without having to return to the station for supplies or information.
If you have any questions about these fire Safety Programs, or would like to schedule a home inspection, please call the Fire Hall at (403) 272-9878.
