Prevention & Public Education

It is the mission of the LaGrange Fire Department to provide the community with life safety education. The members of the department believe in the power of fire and life safety education. Education is one of the most effective things we can do to have a positive influence in reducing injuries and deaths. By educating those who live and work in the City of LaGrange and surrounding areas, we can save lives and protect property.

The Public Education Division makes contact with approximately 20,000 people each year, through a variety of programs, classes, training sessions, fairs, and events. The education division sponsors Public Safety Day, an annual event held each fall, to promote public safety agencies in the community, and provide educational opportunities.

The Public Education officer provides public information to the media, working closely with representatives to keep the public informed of emergency and informational items.
