Learn and explore at the Firefighters Museum of Calgary

Many childhood dreams are filled with becoming a firefighter. The Firefighters Museum of Calgary has room in the last two Wee Wednesday summer programs for children aged three to five to explore the world of firefighting.

On August 8, the Stop! Drop! And Roll! program will teach fire safety while on August 15, children will have the opportunity to discover the antique fire trucks and other firefighting equipment in the Fire Trucks and More program. Both programs run from 10 to 10:45 a.m. with an admission of $5 per family. To register, call 403-246-3322 or email info@firefightersmuseum.org.

“This is the first summer we’ve offered interactive sessions that combine storytelling, crafts, physical activity and objects from our collection for kids aged three to five, “ said Rebecca Melenka, Supervisor, Firefighters Museum of Calgary, “It’s been really fun watching both the kids,  parents and grandparents practice fire safety or sound the sirens.”

The Firefighters Museum of Calgary is dedicated to preserving the history and legacy of the Calgary Fire Department and its firefighters for generations to come. With many collections, exhibitions and programs, The Firefighters Museum of Calgary educates visitors about the history of firefighting in Calgary and honours the noble efforts of Calgary’s firefighters.
