Fire Safety Education & Awareness

Fire Safety Awareness Events

BFES hosts events throughout the year that promote fire and life safety education. These 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!"

- Kathi S. (October 2019)

BFES also hosts an open house at headquarters during Fire Prevention Week each October. It's a great community event offering the public a chance to participate in activities, watch a movie, check out fire safety displays, play in a bouncy castle, get a picture with Sparky, enjoy a hot dog with firefighters, and get fire prevention questions answered.

Fire Safety Programs

Barrie Fire and Emergency Service teaches people of all ages how to make responsible choices regarding health and safety. One of our most important commitments is to give people the knowledge and skills they need to lead safer lives.
