Participants are coached in responsibility, respect, leadership, community involvement, teamwork, pride, and professionalism over the course of an eight-week program.
Fire Stop is an intervention initiative that addresses children under the age of 17 who have set fires or are drawn to playing with fire. The program provides efficient, effective, and meaningful education for participants and their families on the dangers of fire and the devastating effects on families and the community. The goal of the program is to reduce property damage and injuries that result from fires set by youth.
Car Seat Clinics
In partnership with SGI, Saskatchewan Safety Council and Saskatchewan Prevention Institute, the SFD hosts several car seat clinics each year. At the clinic, parents have the opportunity to get their car seat inspected and learn how to properly install the car seat in their vehicle. The goal of the program is to ensure children's car seats are safe, secure and the right fit.
Community Police and Fire Academy
The SFD and Saskatoon Police Service, in partnership with the Saskatoon Council on Aging are shining a light on prevention through a fun, innovative program called the Community Police and Fire Academy.
