Fire Safety Education
The Division of Fire Safety includes the Fire Safety Education program started in 1998 after the passage of the Public Safety Tax.
We are pleased to report tremendous gains in community education as this program targets high risk audiences as well as the community as a whole. Safety education includes fire safety, injury prevention and emergency preparedness. All Boulder citizens are eligible to receive training specific to their group or area of interest.
The Education Specialty Team is composed of 16 Boulder firefighters who love to teach and are especially skilled at providing instruction to a wide variety of audiences. Beginning each year in October (National Fire Safety Month), members of this team visit elementary classrooms to teach lessons specifically designed for different grades. The rest of the year the firefighter educators concentrate on teaching university students, seniors, corporate employees and various community groups.
The program coordinator and team members are continually seeking new methods and strategies to deliver their life saving messages. The team also trains fellow firefighters regarding curriculum updates and the use of new props and support materials.
Please note: Boulder Fire-Rescue does not host birthday parties. Educational station tours may be scheduled by parents or teachers for groups of children.
