Fire and Life Safety Education
Educating the public is the most effective way to prevent the devastating effects of fires and other injuries, and to introduce strategies to deal with these emergencies.
To accomplish this goal, the Charlotte Fire Department delivers fire and life safety education for the residents, businesses and visitors of Charlotte.
The Charlotte Fire Department partners with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools to provide the safety tools needed to prevent tragedies. CFD offers multiple programs for Charlotte- and Mecklenburg-area schools.
Extinguisher training and Senior Citizen Programs are served by the Fire Prevention Bureau. 704-336-2101
Most community events are best served with a fire truck visit from one of our stations. If you have a classroom-based event, consider inviting an educator to your program. The following programs are conducted by NC Fire & Life Safety Educators and offered to classes.
