This is an important area as fire departments in communities large and small need to focus on community fire prevention education. Constant turnover within the ranks means that multiple persons in a fire department will be responsible for being the Fire and Life Safety Educator. These firefighters/fire officers reach out to their communities through schools, community events, and local groups to educate about fire prevention and safety. Fire Prevention Week in the United States is October 3-9, 2010, but programs run, and firefighters/fire officers are being trained in this area, all year long.
