Join us on Saturday, May 11, for the 2024 Fire Hall Open House for Emergency Preparedness Week.

Hosted by the Town of High River Fire and Protective Services team, the open house is a chance for you to connect with our emergency responders to ask questions, share any concerns about our community’s safety or simply come to say hello and meet the team.

Event details:

  • Date: Saturday, May 11
  • Time: 10 am to 2 pm
  • Location: High River Fire Hall (1010 5 St SE, High River, AB T1V 1A8)
  • Enter a free draw for a chance to win a portable BBQ (donated to the Town of High River Fire and Protective Services team by Atco Gas)

Free food and drinks will be on hand—graciously provided by High River Sobeys, The Kinsmen Club of High River, and the High River Salvation Army. This year, enter a free draw for a chance to win a new Broil King Propane BBQ, generously donated by ATCO Gas, or, an emergency 72-hour kit full of supplies.

Some of the Town’s external partners will also attend to showcase their role in High River emergency responses. Some of these partners include:

  • Atco Gas
  • The Salvation Army
  • Foothills Community Immigrant Services
  • Canadian Red Cross
  • Citizens on Patrol
  • Kinsmen Club of High River
  • Sobeys
  • Local RCMP Detachment

Information about local Wildfire Hazard Assessment, 72-hour safety kits, and more will be displayed around the Fire Hall. It's a great opportunity to touch base with the team and ensure you are fully prepared to manage potential emergencies in the first 72 hours. This helps optimize the use of emergency resources during times of crisis. For more information, view the Emergency Planning and Coordination webpage.

The Fire Hall parking lot will be closed during the event such that crews can efficiently act on responses if needed. Visitors are welcome to park on the streets surrounding the Fire Hall. For those less able, parking is available on the North side of the building.

Stay tuned to highriver.ca and our social media channels for updates and additional details as the open house approaches.

See you there!
