Public Education Programs

The Kirkland Lake Fire Services actively encourage public participation in fire prevention. Throughout the year, the Service conducts media campaigns, and organizes activities to promote awareness of common fire dangers at home, at school and at work. Popular events include the annual fire awareness poster contest, visits by Sparky, and the "Chief for a Day" contest.

Fire Services also visits our schools with the Sparky Hazard House. This is a replica of a normal home. The home is filled with hazardous conditions or situations that the students must identify and correct to make the home fire safe. Also available is Sparky, our firedog mascot. Sparky is usually available for fire safety activities in our schools and public education events.
