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 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.
