Public Education is the first line of defense against fires in our community. The safest fire is the one that is prevented before it happens. By educating our residents on how to prevent fires, how to put out fires, and how to escape a fire quickly we eliminate dangerous situations before they occur.

We accomplish this via our public education programs. Options available to the public are:

  • Fire Truck Visit: consists of a fire truck tour, explanation of firefighting equipment, brief discussion on home fire safety and the firefighter’s role within the community.
  • Fire Station Tour: for groups of 25 people or less, a fire station tour can be arranged. See where firefighters work, and train up close while receiving an information on home fire safety.
  • Educational Presentation: We attend community, corporate and special events to discuss, and present fire and life safety messages relevant to your audience.
