Prevention Pays Off

One of the Major highlights for the division are the annual Fire Prevention Week activities. Each year the program grows in intensity. Each school on post is visited by Sparky the Firedog and our inspectors with a message of fire and general safety. Other prevention activities include a coloring contest with great prizes, a stove fire demonstration, and safety giveaways for the whole family. With over 7000 contacts annually, the message of fire and general safety is making a large impact on the public. Fire Prevention helps ensure that injuries and fire loss are being held at a negligible level. High quality customer service is our goal, if we can help you identify potential life safety hazard, set up a training session, talk about children and fire, or answer any questions please contact any inspector via phone or email.
