Fire Safety Education

Wildfire Preparedness Program, Ready! Set! Go!

In 1980 there were 1,232 fires in the City of Huntington Beach.  By the year 2009, that number had been drastically reduced to 407.  This dramatic decrease is due to a combination of fire safety education, a proactive approach to fire prevention, training, and improvements in fire protection technology. Fire Safety Programs, which are provided by the fire department, include:

  • Red Cross Home Safety Visits
  • Fire Station Tours for schools and community groups
  • Educational intervention for juveniles up to age 12 involved in curiosity firesetting behavior
  • Information on smoke detector purchase, placement, installation, maintenance, and testing
  • Fire Prevention Week Open House
