Public Education

At the Louisville Fire Department our focus is fire and injury prevention through education. We offer education to the citizens of our fire district in many forms. Some of these educational opportunities are station tours, fire and life safety presentations, car seat fitting appointments, fire extinguisher classes, CPR classes, bike helmet safety, juvenile firestarter/firesetter intervention information, Kids Mini-Fire-Academy, and more. Our educational programs are suited for all ages; expectant parents, pre-school age children through teens, families, adults, senior citizens and businesses.

Is your home fire safe?
Here are some questions to help you decide:

  • Do I have working smoke detectors in each bedroom?
  • Do I have carbon monoxide detectors in my home?
  • Do I have all ignition sources (matches and lighters) secured in a locked cabinet?
  • Do I know how to properly use a fire extinguisher?
  • Do I know two ways out of my house?
  • Does my family have a fire escape plan and meeting place?
  • Am I using candles safely away from children, pets and ignitable sources?
  • Are my children properly restrained in the appropriate child safety seat?
  • Do I make sure that everyone in my vehicle is wearing a seat belt at all times?
  • Do I know what the Colorado State laws are regarding child safety seats and seat belts?
  • Do all members of my family know what to do and where to go in an emergency?
  • Do my children know the difference between toys and tools?
  • Do my children know when it is appropriate to call 911?
  • How many matches does it take to start a really big fire that could result in life or property loss?
  • Are my family members all wearing helmets when they ski, bike, skateboard, etc?

If you are interested in scheduling one of our presentations please complete either an online  Station Tour Request Form or an online Fire Talk or Visit Request Form.
