Learn fire safety through fun activities

Visit FireSmart Family Day this Saturday in West Kelowna

Learn about fire safety this weekend through fun family activities.

West Kelowna Fire Rescue, with the City of West Kelowna and Westbank First Nation are hosting FireSmart Family Day at Fire Station 31 in West Kelowna Saturday, May 6.

The public is invited to take part in free fun and educational activities for the whole family, helping everyone learn how to be Fire Smart.

Kids receive a passport challenging them to visit all the activities to earn a stamp and, at the end, a gift bag of goodies. They’ll learn about “stop, drop and roll,” how to escape a fire at the fire safety house, visit with Sparky the Fire Dog and more.

There will be lots of fire trucks and firefighting gear to check out and a bouncy house. Free hot dogs and refreshments will be offered.

Adults can visit information booths to learn what they can do to help ensure their homes and properties are FireSmart and what West Kelowna Fire Rescue is doing to help protect our community from fire threat.
