Fire school presentations & station tours

The Regina Fire Department supports public education activities at all school levels. To arrange delivery of a program, call 306-777-7714 at least 2 weeks in advance.

Preschool visits

The Regina Fire Department has introduced the Learn Not to Burn program, from the National Fire Protection Association, to virtually all preschools in the community. The Learn Not to Burn Program teaches children about the effects of fire, and why it is important not to play with matches or lighters. It also teaches them how to escape and survive in the event fire does occur in their home.

As an appreciation of preschool teacher’s efforts, firefighters will visit the school or invite the students to come to the fire station. Firefighters are then able to reinforce the safety messages the students have learned in class.

Elementary school survival activitiesKids learning to be fire safe

Fire crews visit elementary schools around Regina to teach fire escape planning to students. This program uses 3 interactive fire safety stations to teach:

  • What to do if your clothes catch fire (drop, stop and roll)
  • How to escape if there is a fire in your home (fire escape planning and practice)
  • What information to give when you call 9-1-1
  • What equipment is used to fight fires and the type of emergencies that firefighters respond to

This program is a favourite of many children throughout all school systems.

  • Understand the duties of a firefighter
