New app offers safety tips from Regina Fire and Protective Services

In a typical year, Regina Fire and Protective Services presents approximately 400 public fire prevention education sessions to the community, but because of the pandemic, it had to come up with some new ways to get the message across.

With the help of the University of Regina, RFPS has created a new app called Regina - Fire 911 Education.

The app helps parents teach their children how to call 911 by actually dialling and hitting the call button, without connecting to a real dispatcher.

It also teaches users how to find their address and provides a script for kids to read to a 911 dispatcher.

The app can be downloaded from any app store.
