Fire Safety Presentations
We want to teach our community about fire safety and offer a wide range of fire safety and education curriculum. Classes are tailored to meet the specific needs of your audience. Curriculum is based on age and topic, ranging from preschool to high school and beyond. Each class is 30 to 60 minutes in length. When planning your event, be sure to give us plenty of time to arrange our schedules to best serve you. Fire safety presentations are conducted by our on-duty crew, so it's possible they will be called to an emergency during your event. For information on topics and to schedule a class, call our training officer.
