Calgary Fire Department holds open houses to help protect yours

The week of October 3 to 9 is National Fire Prevention Week. As part of Fire Prevention Week in our city, the Calgary Fire Department will be hosting open houses at four fire station locations this Saturday, October 2 from 1 – 4 p.m.

Does your family know what to do in the event of a house fire? Are your smoke detectors operating properly? Is your fire extinguisher charged and in a convenient location?

To make sure you’ve got the best answers to those and other questions join Calgary Fire crews for tours, displays, and a variety of activities. The open houses are designed to entertain attendees and educate about fire safety and the need for preparation.

The participating Fire Stations are:

  • Fire Station #15 – 6328- 35 Avenue N.W.
  • Fire Station #23 – 2727- 26 Avenue S.E.
  • Fire Station #30 – 6 McKenzie Towne Gate S.E.
  • Fire Station #32 – 800 Saddletown Circle N.E.
