Public Education

In 2020 we had to change up the way we addressed Fire Prevention Week.  Usually, we would have be in classrooms and would have had an open house at the fire station to spread the word about fire safety. But in 2020, in an effort to help keep everyone healthy, we put together a Fire Prevention web page. Even though we could not be with you in person, we still wanted to be able to share fire safety and prevention information. Below, you will find links to fire prevention videos that we made in 2020 designed to help educate school-aged children about things they can do to make their homes more fire safe.   Thank you again to Fire Marshall Jon Dunaway and KLTV’s Shawn Luhn for making such great videos!

In addition to the focus on kitchen fire safety (the 2020 theme), we have included topics that include creating a home fire escape plan, a virtual tour of Longview’s newest fire engine, and showing the protective equipment a firefighter must wear to keep them safe while fighting a fire.
