HALLOWEEN 2021  -  October 6, 2021  Due to limits that remain in place for outdoor gatherings, North Bay Fire and Emergency Services has cancelled its annual Halloween Night for Kids again this year.

“We continue to put the health and safety of residents first,” said Fire Chief Jason Whiteley. “Ontario remains in Step 3 of the reopening plan, which limits non-seated organized outdoor gatherings at 100 people with physical distancing. Our annual Halloween Night for Kids is a popular event and has typically attracted far greater numbers than what is currently permitted.”







Tour of a Fire Hall

When you tour the Fire Department, your group will have the opportunity to tour the fire trucks, and get a glimpse into the life of a firefighter. To schedule a tour of the hall, please call (705) 474-5662.

Things to remember when planning your visit:

  • When we schedule a request, the firefighters may have to respond to an emergency, therefore we do not guarantee availability.  Unfortunately you may not be given advance notice of this.
  • Ages of the children – If you are at the hall when a call comes in, the children must be moved against the wall as quickly as possible in order to ensure a fast response time by our firefighters. This can be a very loud process, including sirens and speakerphones. Please ensure that the children are aware of the possibility of this happening.
  • Adequate supervision – Please ensure at least 1 adult per 5 children. As stated above, should a call come in, our men must leave immediately, and need you, the caretaker, to move the children away from the vehicles.

We require the following information:

  • Number of children and group ages (group max. 20)
  • Number of adults (1 adult per 7 children 7 to 12 years of age, 1 adult per 4 children 4 to 6 years of age)
  • Date requested Mondays ONLY (minimum 2-3 weeks prior notice)
  • Tours are scheduled at 10am or 2pm. 
    • Please have multiple dates when calling
  • Name of contact person
  • Organization phone number
  • Station wanted to visit (Fire station tours 30 min. to 1 hour)
    Address of event (Fire truck attending a public event maximum of 1 hour.)
