Each member of the family participates in creating a family evacuation plan.
Service de sécurité incendie de Montréal

Primary school children make wonderful fire safety ambassadors. Once they've learned about fire safety, they'll be able to create an evacuation plan with the participation of the whole family. This conference will give them all the resources to do this while teaching them attitudes and behaviours to adopt during a fire or when an alarm goes off (smoke alarm or alarm system).

Target audience

Children ages 7 to 11.


Around 60 minutes.
