Public Education & Community Relations

Our mission is to create a change in attitude toward fire and life safety behaviors through education in fire and injury prevention methods.

Educating our community is a collaborative effort between many organizations and agencies. The Tulsa Fire Department works closely with the Tulsa Police Department, SAFE Kids, Tulsa Area Red Cross and Tulsa Senior Services.

Programs Provided:

  • Fire and Life Safety Presentations
  • Portable Fire Extinguisher Training (Classroom only, no live fire use)
  • Emergency Preparedness Planning
  • Career Fairs and Community Helper Presentations
  • Fire Station Tours
  • Fire Truck "Show and Tell" Presentations
  • Juvenile Firesetter Referral Program
  • Fire Safety Mobile Classroom Trailer (For use with 2nd grade students in the Tulsa city limits)

Each of these programs will be customized to fit your needs. We speak to preschool age children through senior adults. If you would like more information about our programs or would like to schedule a presentation, please call (918) 596-9420.

Services provided:

  • Child Passenger Safety - The Tulsa Fire Department offers a free car seat check-up every third Thursday of the month at Fire Station 22 located at 7303 E. 15 St. from  2 - 4 p.m.
  • Smoke Detectors - In the event a fire fatality occurs, firefighters go door-to-door to canvas the area near the fire location, to make sure every home in the area has a working smoke detector. Periodically, firefighters, performing Project Life, will also canvas one square mile areas installing smoke detectors in high fire incident neighborhoods.

If you are a homeowner and cannot afford a smoke detector, please call (918) 596-2179. An appointment will be scheduled for a free smoke detector installation. (Note: Landlords must provide detectors to renters.)
