Public Education

Emergency Management staff are passionate about educating our community to be as resilient as possible.

In support of this initiative, Fire Department staff will deliver emergency preparedness presentations to give you and your group the resources you need to be prepared before, during, and after an emergency.

Topics for these presentations can tailored to be specific to your groups needs. For example, an apartment building with senior residents will have different needs than a community with single family home dwellings and varying demographics.

Presentations are offered to community groups such as, but not limited to:

  • Businesses
  • Neighbourhoods
  • Strata Groups
  • Service Groups and Clubs
  • Faith-Based Organizations
  • School Groups
