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
