When planning your special event, there are several factors to consider. Whether you’re planning a Stampede event or a holiday event, the Calgary Fire Department is available to assist to ensure a safe event. We encourage event organizers, sponsors and vendors to be familiar with safe-fire practices and procedures for all events, whether inside a building, outside with cooking booths or in a temporary tent.
To work collaboratively with the Calgary Fire Department for the fire-safe planning of your event, please call 311.
Fire safety plans for events
All events that occur in Calgary have to comply with specific National Fire Code (Alberta Edition) requirements. One of these requirements is to have a fire safety plan. When submitting your permit application, two copies or an electronic copy of a floor/area layout must be included.
