Fire Prevention Week

Annually, fire departments around North America hold events in their communities describing various fire prevention initiatives. With the help of our mascot, Sparky, Brandon Fire & Emergency Services is proud to be a part of promoting fire safety during Fire Prevention Week. The theme changes each year with our most recent theme being displayed in the banner.

Brandon Activities Include:

One lucky Grade 4 Student from each school in the Brandon School Division as well as students from Souris, Carberry, Shilo, Wawanesa, Douglas, and Forrest will spend the entire day between the BFES #1 Fire Hall and the Manitoba Emergency Services College. There is a new fire prevention theme every year and each student receives lunch courtesy of McDonald’s Restaurants. The “Chiefs” spend their day between the #1 Fire Hall and the Manitoba Emergency Services College learning how Fire Prevention can become a part of their life everyday - just like our Fire Chief.
