Free community pancake breakfast returns to RMWB Fire Hall

Saturday, September 24th, 2022

9:00am - 12:00pm
Firehall 1, Fort McMurray

Tours, face painters, obstacle course, teddy bear clinic and more!


After a two-year hiatus, Regional Emergency Services (RES) and other local emergency services providers are very excited to again invite the community to a free pancake breakfast and fire hall open house.

On Saturday, Sept. 24, from 9 a.m. until noon at Fire Hall 1 (Hawkins Hall, 2 Tolen Drive), breakfast will be served, and many fun, interesting activities and demonstrations held. The morning will have something for everyone, from drone equipment displays and vehicle rescue demonstrations, to tours of emergency services equipment, fire trucks, and a fire safety trailer.

Children can enjoy face painters, Zumba with Sparky and other local mascots, and even a kid-sized firefighter obstacle course. Children with teddy bears in need of attention may bring them in to receive care at a special clinic.

Free public parking for the breakfast will be available at Fort McMurray Composite High School and Keyano College Theatre parking lots. A free shuttle service from the parking lots to the fire hall will be available. Parking will also be available at Fort McMurray Heritage Village.

Families are encouraged to make a day of it. Just down the street, Culture Day celebrations will be hosted at Heritage Village from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. where there will be games and activities for all. People will also have a chance to make butter and dress up in period clothing.


“We’re very excited to once again present this event with our partners as a thank you to the community for their continued support in making Wood Buffalo a safe and resilient place to live,” says Regional Fire Chief Jody Butz. “Everyone is invited to stop by Fire Hall 1 on Sept. 24 to enjoy breakfast and see a small piece of what local emergency service providers do.”
