Our department strives to keep our community safe. Not just through fire prevention week, but all year long. Once a year we provide the kindergartners at National trail Schools with vital safety tips, information, and helpful resources to help prevent disaster. Starting this year we have partnered with Community Safety Net to provide further knowledge to our fourth grade class as well. Browse our links page to see if there are helpful resources to assist you in your efforts to remain fire safe.
