Community safety initiatives and programs

Our goal is for Burnaby to be a safe place to live, work, play and visit. These collaborative programs help you and your neighbours stay safe.

Additional resources

Extreme Heat

Keep yourself and your family safe during extreme heat events with cooling centres and pop-up cooling stations.

Be Park Smart

Burnaby’s parks and trails are open and available for everyone to enjoy. While getting outdoors offers health benefits, it is important that you are prepared in advance to ensure you have a fun and safe experience when visiting our parks and public spaces.

Transportation plan

Our Transportation Plan fully recognizes the critical role transportation networks play in creating a safer community.

Fire safety plans

A well designed Fire Safety Plan aids both building owners, occupants and emergency services personnel with responding to emergency situations. A plan is required by the British Columbia Fire Code based on building use or occupancy types.

Nasal naloxone kits

Nasal naloxone spray reduces the chances of overdose from opioids. We provide emergency access to the spray kits across public facilities.

Safe harbour

All our community facilities are part of the Safe Harbour program, providing an immediate safe place for you if you experience discrimination in or near our facilities.

Taskforce on sexually exploited and at-risk youth

The Burnaby-New Westminster Task Force on Sexually Exploited and At-Risk Youth works to address the sexual abuse of children in the commercial sex trade and to promote support for at-risk youth.
