Community Safety

Stay off of the Sheep River!

With the warmer temperatures in the forecast for this coming weekend the Okotoks Fire Department reminds you to keep ice safety in mind when around frozen rivers, ponds and lakes. Keep a safe distance from the river banks as ice thickness can be deceiving – this includes your pets. If you see someone in trouble call 9-1-1 and do not attempt to rescue them yourself. Encourage the person to stay calm, kick their legs while trying to pull themselves out. If you can safely, reach or throw and aid such as a branch or rope.

The Okotoks Fire Department believes that it is vital for fire and safety education to reach all audiences.  Watch for our education campaigns throughout the year via our Social Media Pages, website, and local media.  We also visit schools throughout the year and you can find us out at local community events.
