Fire Prevention

Fire Prevention Programs

All department staff members, under the direction of the Fire Chief and the Fire Inspector, perform Fire Prevention Inspections and enforcement of Fire Codes. Educational programs include visiting area schools with our Fire Safety House to teach children both the dangers of fire and how to react if they do encounter fire.

The department offers year round visits to any fire station for groups to learn more about our operations and fire safety, however due to COVID, visits are temporarily on hold.   The department will provide business based fire education in fire extinguishers, escape plans and fire safety. Throughout the year the department will attend various special events in our community with the Fire Safety House or to set up an information table with prevention material. If requested, the department will visit homes and offer fire safety tips and suggestions for an evacuation plan.

The department has a Juvenile Fire Setter Intervention Program which offers advice, limited counseling, and assistance to juveniles who experience problems with fire setting. If you would like to learn more about this program, please call the Fire Department at 715-395-1680.
