During Fire Prevention Week, the Conception Bay South Fire Department takes part in several activities. They include:

- Fire Chief for a Day Contest: This contest is open to Conception Bay South students in grades K-4. A lucky winner is selected to join the Fire Chief for a fun fill day of “work”.
- Open House: The 2018 Open House at Station 1 in Kelligrews is scheduled for Saturday, October 13. Visitors will be treated to station and truck tours, face painting, a bouncy castle, a visit from Sparky the Fire Dog, and more! Check back for more details closer to the event.
