Community Events

The Rama Fire Rescue Service is involved in a number of community events throughout the year.  Each of these events provides an invaluable opportunity to give our department a chance to connect with citizens and let them know who we are and what we do.

We don't just fight fires but provide a full emergency service to the community, emergency medical assistance, public education and fire safety inspections.

We participate in a number of city events such as Canada Day Celebrations, National First Nations Day, Annual Powwow, Remembrance Day, School BBQ's, Summer Time Programs, Seniors Events, Food Drives, October Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Movember, and other events by Rama Chief and Council.

Station Tours

The Fire Department provides fire hall tours to preschool children and other youth groups such as the Rama elementary school, other First Nations and many levels of Government visitors. These tours provide the fire department with an invaluable opportunity to educate 'high risk' groups within our community.

During these tours children are taught the importance of not playing with matches and lighters, knowing the sound of the smoke alarm and what to do if they hear it, and to 'stop, drop and roll' if their clothes catch on fire.

To arrange a tour, please call the Fire Captain at 705-325-3611, extension 1276.
