Public Education

Each year, fire kills more than 4,500 people and injures tens of thousands of others in the United States. Fire related fatalities are higher in the United States than most other counties. Children and the elderly are particularly vulnerable to fire.

The Fresno County Fire Protection District is committed to providing quality fire and life safety education in an effort to reduce this high number of fatalities and injuries nationwide related to fires. Fresno County Fire Protection District, believes a proactive approach in fire prevention education is the best way to reduce fatalities and injuries and the $9 billion in property loss nationwide annually.

Fresno County Fire Protection District, through community outreach programs, educates thousands of children and adults each year on how to keep their home and business safe from fire. Proactive fire and life safety education is taught by firefighters throughout the Fire District annually. Fresno County Fire Protection District is also a strong supporter of the Early Detection Program (EDP) developed by firefighters from the district to place smoke detectors into homes, county wide. This program also educates families in fire safety and having a home evacuation plan. In collaboration with citizens and safety/ injury prevention experts, the Early Detection Program gives children and their families the skills and knowledge they need to create safer homes and communities.

Fresno County Fire Protection District has several annual public safety fairs where citizens can meet their Fire Fighters in person and witness first hand many fire safety and injury prevention demonstrations. Some of these demonstrations include auto extrication, advanced emergency medical treatment and equipment demonstrations.
