Public Education division

The Effingham Fire Department Public Education Division is committed to educating our citizens on fire safety by offering a variety of services:

  • Annual school fire drills
  • Fire Station tours
  • Fire safety talks, geared for our young and senior citizens.
  • Fire extinguisher training and safety talks at local businesses, group homes, and assisted living facilities.
  • Smoke detector program: we visit neighborhoods in the city to check smoke detectors and ensure proper placement.
  • “Keep the Wreath Red” program: we hang holiday wreaths on both fire stations, each adorned with red lights to raise awareness to the dangers of Christmas tree fires.
