The Fire Prevention Bureau's primary mission is to coordinate a range of programs and activities geared toward both children and adults of all ages throughout the year.
Our goal is to education the public and/or schools through fire safety education and involvement with community groups.
Some of the activities include:
Fire Safety Talks (Adults & Children)
Child Safety Seat Inspections
Blood Pressure Screenings
Fire Extinguisher Training
Home Safety Inspections
Tornado Safety Instructions
Smoke Detector Evaluations
Kindergarten Fire Truck Rides
In addition, the Fire Prevention Bureau offers educational programs to some of our local schools, such as the Risk Watch Program. This program covers a large range of subject areas that are taught by a number of different professionals.
We also host fire safety talks for seniors 65 and older at various senior centers. All of these activities and programs give the public a chance to get up close and personal with their local firefighters.
Please feel free to contact the Fire Prevention Bureau office at (847) 362-5664 to schedule any of the community activities mentioned above.
