Public Education & Community Activities


The Fire Prevention Bureau's primary mission is to coordinate a range of programs and activities geared both toward adults and children 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:
  • Station Tours
  • Fire Safety Talks (Adults & Children)
  • Child Safety Seat Inspections
  • Blood Pressure Screenings
  • Fire Extinguisher Training
  • Home Safety Inspections
  • Tornado Safety Instructions
  • Smoke Detector Replacement
  • Fire Drills
  • Block Parties
  • 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. A new program called Remembering When is also being offered by the fire department, which talks about both fire and fall safety. This program is geared toward citizens 65 and older. 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.
