Fire Prevention Week – School Fire Drills / Fire and Safety House

Oak Bay Firefighters volunteer during Fire Prevention week in which we conduct school fire drills at all schools in the District of Oak Bay. At the end of all school fire drills an individual school is recognized for their speed, accountabilty and organized evacuation during the fire drill. The school that was awarded the coveted trophy for the 2011 school fire drills was “Willows Elementary”! SPARKY would like to congratulate Willows and a special thank you to all schools for their participation in the school fire drills.

Oak Bay Firefighters 1856 and Victoria Firefighters 730 built the “Fire Training House” that is utilized in all Elementary Schools at the Grade 3 level in Oak Bay. The house is taken to each individual school where Grade 3 students on put through fire safety training and have to safely exit the smoke house. This program reaches all students of Oak Bay as they progress through the education system.
