Public Education for First Responders | SPSA

Public Education

Public education is a vital part of public safety in Saskatchewan. Robust education programs and modern resources contribute to reducing over-all risk, reducing property loss, and reducing serious injury or fatalities.

The Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency (SPSA) and The Saskatchewan Association of Fire Chiefs (SAFC) have created a unique partnership to produce “made in Saskatchewan” fire safety resources. The Provincial Education Committee Partnership was established in spring 2021. The Partnership includes representation and financial support from the SAFC, the SPSA and First Nations Emergency Management. The Partnership will work to collaboratively produce new resources each year to support prevention efforts in every community and response agency.

In Fall 2021, the Partnership will release its first resource; a fire safety comic and activity book. The resource will be provided to all school aged children in grades K to 5, on and off reserve through their schools. This creative educational resource will be in the hands of almost 100,000 children designed specifically for fire safety in Saskatchewan.

The Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency encourages local fire departments to support fire prevention through public education partnerships and developing resources like the ones below:


Fire Safety Kits:
Radio Public Services Announcements:
Social Media Resources:

Fire Prevention Week

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) officially proclaims the second week in October each year as Fire Prevention Week.

Themes are chosen to encourage people to take personal steps to increase our safety from fire – and how to escape safely in the event of one.

This year’s theme is “Fire Won’t Wait. Plan Your Escape”. Please see the public education section for ideas to promote Fire Prevention Week in your community.
