Fire prevention is a function of many fire departments. The goal of fire prevention is to educate the public to take precautions to prevent potentially harmful fires, and be educated about surviving them. It is a proactive method of reducing emergencies and the damage caused by them.
While we focus on fire prevention during all the month of October, we strive to make a difference in the public all year long.
We educate in all schools Pre-K through 12th grade at Ashland City Elementary, Cheatham Middle and Cheatham High Schools
We work with Tennessee’s State Fire Marshal office as well as guidance from FEMA‘s U.S. Fire Administration, the National Fire Sprinkler Association, the National Fire Protection Association, and several other organizations.
