Fire Prevention Programs

Our team of fire prevention officers has one key mission: to stop fires before they start.  We do this by teaching about fire safety, building inspections, investigating why fires happen and by working with the City’s Building Department to make sure new buildings are safe.

Fire station visit requests

To schedule a station visit, submit an online application at least 30 days before the event. However, visit availability depends on operational needs and crew availability. Please note that Kingston Fire and Rescue (KFR) crew may be required to leave for emergencies and may not return during the visit.

Fire truck booking requests

To have a Kingston Fire and Rescue (KFR) truck attend your event, submit an online application at least 30 days before the event using the online form. KFR fire trucks and crews can attend events based on operational needs and the day’s requirements. Crews remain on duty and may need to leave for emergencies and may not return during the event.

Ensure the event site provides a parking space for easy fire truck access in case of emergencies. Fire crews will be available for about one hour at the event, staying near the fire truck. Services provided include fire and life safety information, details about KFR services and displays of emergency-response equipment.
