Fire Safety Education & Awareness

This page contains information about Barrie Fire's education and awareness initiatives, programs, and events.

Fire Safety Awareness Events & Campaigns

BFES promotes fire and life safety education throughout the year. Events provide an opportunity for families, individuals and people of all ages to learn about fire and life safety with the help and support of Barrie Fire staff.

Station Tours & Truck Visits

Station tours can be booked at any one of our five stations, and trucks can visit your location. 

"Thanks to the very kind firemen who showed us around this morning. My grandsons, Dylan and Jordan, loved seeing the trucks and especially the hovercraft. On the way home Dylan decided he was going to be a fireman when he grows up. And they loved all the goodies they got to take home. Thank you again!"
