Fire Safety Education
More than 3,500 Americans perish each year in fires and approximately 18,300 are injured. An overwhelming number of fires occur in the home. There are time-tested ways to prevent and survive a fire. It’s not a question of luck, It’s a matter of good public education.
The Statesboro Fire Department believes one of the best ways to eliminate the loss of life or property is through Public Fire Safety Education. We offer a wide variety of education opportunities such as fire safety talks, show-n-tells, tours of the station, fire extinguisher training and much more.
