Public Education

The St Lucie County Fire District offers Public Education to the community free of charge. The primary goal of this program is directed at increasing knowledge of fire and injury prevention to all ages within our community, with the result of decreasing injury and death. This program will evolve in response to the traumatic injury and fatality rates within our community.

Injury/fire prevention and safety education will be delivered within the school classroom and in other public arenas. There are several community agencies partnering together to accomplish this mutual goal here in St Lucie County.

Public Safety Education Programs


Our Fire Safety House is available to visit schools and local events throughout St. Lucie County. The Safety House is a mobile classroom setting designed to teach children and adults how to safely escape in the event of a fire. Participants will learn how to properly maintain smoke alarms and the importance of making a fire escape plan. The classes last approximately 30 minutes.

Juvenile Fire Stoppers Program


The Fire Stoppers Program is an educational intervention outreach in which a partnership of participation is established between the family, the child and the fire department. This serves as an educational tool, teaching the child to respect the dangers of fire. This is an attempt to turn an incident into a learning experience.
