Community Risk Reduction

Fire Safety Activities

Tamarac Fire Rescue observes Fire Prevention Month throughout the month of October. Children from all over the community visit our fire stations and participate in our Fire Prevention programs. Tamarac's firefighters have developed a variety of activities for the kids. They include:

  • A video presentation
  • A Stop, Drop and Roll demonstration
  • Tours of our fire engine and fire station
  • Children flowing water from a real fire hose

In addition to our in-station programs, we also take the show on the road to schools to reach those who cannot make it to the fire station. We have added a Fire Prevention NFPA themed poster contest at Challenger and Tamarac Elementary schools where winning classes were awarded pizza lunches with real firefighters. Pizza is supplied by Ferro’s Italian Restaurant, a family owned and operated Tamarac restaurant for over 30 years.
