Community Outreach

Since 1978, the Community Safety & Education Team has grown from one program
to over thirty. In 1979, the fire district's first official campaign was the
"Learn Not to Burn" program, a comprehensive fire safety education curriculum
for school children established by the National Fire Protection Association
(NFPA). Continuing to grow, change and evolve with our community's needs to
provide the highest quality of education in fire safety and prevention, our team
has diversified it's reach into many programs and market segments. Working
primarily with our local schools and service clubs, we strive to reach every
child every school year and make informative and educational presentations to
our service clubs on various topics such as Fire Safety, Emergency Medical Services, Defensible Space and Fuels Management, and CPR/AED classes.
