The Penticton Fire Department offers multiple safety programs to promote public education. Our overriding purpose is to help children, adults, businesses and industry become more aware of fire and life safety issues, preventative measures and appropriate emergency responses.
Child Car Seats
The leading cause of injuries and death of children in B.C. is from motor vehicle collisions. Several members of the PFD have received BCAA Child Passenger Safety Educator II training and can provide child seat education to the public, including child car seat clinics, enforcement initiatives, information sessions and public awareness campaigns. To book an appointment, call 250-490-2311 weekdays between 8 a.m.- 4 p.m.
Close the Door!
A closed door can slow the spread of fire, reduce toxic smoke levels, improve oxygen levels and decrease the temperatures dramatically – and that could make a life-saving difference in your home. Read more safety tips at closeyourdoor.org
