Beacon FD is also actively involved in the fire prevention side of the business as well as the suppression side. City firefighters perform fire inspections and have an active fire prevention program for children and adults. Providing fire extinguisher training, help with building evacuation plans and educating the public about carbon monoxide hazards are commonplace. That is why we have added this section to the website, because we are constantly striving to educate the general public with fire prevention and fire safety information.
