Junior Fire Chief Program

Each year, grade four students are invited to enter the Junior Fire Chief contest.

Students from participating schools are required to submit a 50 word essay on 'How I can keep my family fire safe.' Teachers choose their top essays and a team from AFD selects the winning submission.

The winner will:

  • assist the crews with their school fire drill
  • ride in the fire engine back to the station for lunch with the crews and family
  • tour the hall
  • have a photo opportunity with the media
  • return to school where their entire class will receive a fire safety presentation and surprises!
  • ride in the fire truck during the Canada Day parade
