Wildfire Prevention A Success

June 5, 2023

Hanna Fire Department and Special Area Fire Services were excited to host a Wildfire Community Preparedness Day on May 10, 2023, at the Hanna Fire Hall. This event gave people a chance to learn what they can do on and around their properties to help protect against the threat of wildfire.

Around 175 people came out and enjoyed some delicious free food while watching fire tower demonstrations. ATCO Electric sponsored the BBQ portion of the evening, they cooked around 100 hot dogs and 250 burgers.

“On behalf of the Town of Hanna and Special Areas, I want to thank the community for coming to our 2023 Community Wildfire Prevention event at the Hanna Fire Hall! It was nice to see so many people wanting to learn how to FireSmart their property. It was also great for our fire department to show off some of the tools that we use to keep them safe.”

David Mohl, Hanna Fire Chief

Firefighters from the region were on hand to share tips and simple steps on how to reduce the risk of fire around your home, whether they live in town or out in the country. Tables were set up with information about how to FireSmart your home and property, signing up for local emergency alerts, volunteering, and much more.

“Special Areas Fire Services wants to thank our partners, the Town of Hanna and the Hanna Fire Department for hosting this event. Your fire members and Hanna staff were so important to making this event a hit, we look forward to our next community event together!”

Rob Palmer, Special Areas Fire Chief
