Fire Station Tours – Fire Station Tours are an opportunity to see and learn about modern firefighting equipment, including fire trucks, and to ask firefighters those questions you’ve always wanted to.

Free salted gravel – A sand and salt coated gravel mixture called “pickle” is available at no charge for citizens to use on private and public sidewalks. The pickle mixture helps breakdown built up snow and ice on sidewalks so that ice and snow can more easily be removed. The pickle mixture is available in sandboxes outside several fire stations as well as City of Calgary Roads Maintenance District Offices. Please bring your own container to fill, as there are no containers available. Click here for list of Calgary Fire Stations that offer free salted gravel.
Household Hazardous Waste Drop-off – The Calgary Fire Department partners with Calgary Waste & Recycling Services to offer locations outside of several Calgary fire stations where citizens can safely drop off household hazardous waste.
Blood pressure screening – You can get your blood pressure checked at Calgary fire stations between 1 p.m. and 9 p.m. seven days a week. No appointment is necessary. Checking your blood pressure will take approximately 20 to 30 minutes. If you have health concerns, please see your doctor. All fire stations, except for Airport Fire Station 13, offer this non-emergency service.
