School fire education


Vaughan Fire and Rescue Service (VFRS) provides fire prevention education to elementary and high-school students – both in-school and at a fire station. Please call 905-832-2281 to schedule an educational session for a school. Families may also visit the fire stations without an appointment; firefighters will be more than happy to provide a tour of the station.
