Public Education and Information

The Public Fire Safety Education Section is responsible for Statewide fire prevention education, information, and outreach services of the Division. Ideally, these activities are conducted in collaboration with local fire departments. This section of the Division provides support services, technical assistance, educational equipment and resources to help fire departments, fire and life safety educators, and other community organizations address and reduce the fire problems in their communities as well as meeting the fire prevention and education needs of Vermonters of all ages.

The goals of public fire safety education are to help people understand how to prevent fires from occurring and to teach them how to react safely if a fire does occur. Our objective is to enhance community education programs and initiatives by facilitating your access to a wide variety of fire prevention information and programs. We recommend that  all fire department educators, parents and teachers carefully evaluate the information for content and accuracy and then decide on whether this information should be integrated into your programs.
