Fire Safety Public Education

Our Department does more than just fight fire. As our motto says, "We Do It All" - and that includes community outreach and public education. We focus on prevention by identifying and rectifying unsafe behaviors for all ages, from the very young to seniors and those with Special Needs. 

Fire safety educators and firefighters conduct training, provide lectures and fire safety demonstrations in elementary schools, at community & association meetings and at other community events. Training sessions address the common causes of fire and fire injuries in the home, as well as provide information on how to prevent fires and what to do in case of fire. The fire safety education programs target those most vulnerable to fire, young children and older adults. 

We also offer fire station tours and company visits where the firefighters go out into the community to show off the equipment and use as props for teaching fire safety lessons. But it does not stop there. Our Fire Safety House trailer contains a kitchen, living room and bedroom. A smoke machine creates a fire simulation within which children can practice fire evacuation techniques. The house features smoke alarms and a phone to call 911.

Lastly, we have our famous Fire Safety Puppet Show that has been entertaining and educating children for years. The puppets teach using music and interaction to deliver the fire safety message. 

All of the programs we offer are at no cost. To schedule a program, contact the Cape Coral Fire Department at (239) 242-3303.
