Welcome To Fire Prevention
Our mission is to help our citizens--residents and businesses alike--reduce fire and safety risks.
To do so, we offer a variety of educational programs in general and fire safety; smoke alarm installation and operation; home self-inspection procedures; fire extinguisher use and training; and overall risk reduction techniques. These programs are available for senior citizens; families; clubs and associations; church groups; schools; HOAs and condo associations; youth groups and clubs; and other organizations.
For our businesses, schools, and non-profit organizations, we can provide general fire and safety information for owner and tenant operated businesses; fire extinguisher training; fire drill coordination and oversight; and other activities which will enhance safety and reduce risk.
If you are interested in any of our programs, please see the request information shown below for your particular type of request.
