Sharing Grey Highlands Fire public education engagement strategy for Fire Prevention Week which launched in  Grey Highlands schools and with the Public (shared on social media platforms) September 28, 2020. (Social Media Video) (Schools Video)

Inspiration for this campaign, stemmed from our attendance in the NFPA & OAFE Fire Prevention Week web conference held on September 10, 2020.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions we decided to utilize “What’s Your Burning Question” to engage with our schools and community. We received video questions or emails back from Teachers, students, families, and the public. Those who participated were entered in a draw for a FPW prize on October 9, 2020. Our department  responded via social media to any questions provided.

Stay tuned to our social media platforms for our program launch on September 28, 2020:
