Public Education


The public education provided by the West Side Fire Department continues to support every facet of our stated mission ‘Neighbor Helping Neighbor”. Focusing on reducing our highest community risks, the West Side Fire Department remains committed to actively educating citizens in an effort to make our community a safe and secure place to live, work and play.

While a significant amount of our service to the community is reactive in nature, public education provides an effective avenue for proactively reducing hazards and loss of life and property while simultaneously strengthening the ties between the Department and the people we serve.
