In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and requirements for physical distancing, the Kelowna Fire Department has brought its portable Fire Safety House and important educational information, to video.

Typically, every school in Kelowna would be visited by the Kelowna Fire Department within the academic year. Students from kindergarten to grade three are taught the importance of evacuating the home when they hear the smoke alarm, staying low under smoke, how to check doors for heat prior to opening them and proceeding to their designated family meeting spot outside.
