Fire Safety

Public Education Requests

Most fires and injuries are preventable. Educating the public about how to survive and prevent fires from starting is an important responsibility of the fire service. Mission Fire Rescue Service provides many services to the community, including providing educational materials (e.g. safety brochures, fire safety activity sheets, colouring books, etc) along with free public education sessions and guided tours at Fire Station No.1 to schools, community groups, and businesses. Our educational programs include:

  • Fire Safety Education (Age 7 to Senior)
  • School programs (Grade 2 onward)
  • Lectures
  • Fire Prevention Week activities

When planning your public education session please keep the following in mind:

  1. All participants must be at least seven years of age or in Grade 2.
  2. Each group is limited to 20 people and at least one adult supervisor is required per five children. Adult supervision must be maintained throughout the visit.
  3. Submit your request at least one month prior to your desired date.
  4. Public education sessions are no more than one hour.

Small group station tours: For groups of four people or less, just stop by Fire Station No. 1. If the crew is available they will be happy to show you the Station.

Community Event Participation

Does your community event align with our Public Education initiatives? Community event participation by MFRS firefighters is available to City of Mission community groups. Please submit your request at least one month prior to the date of your event.
