Fire prevention activities and visits

The Bloomington Fire Department will present fire prevention programs to Bloomington schools, clubs, organizations and residents. Firefighters deliver information appropriate for children of all ages.

Among the most popular programs are the Fire Safety House, truck visits, station tours, and Sparky the Fire Dog and Pluggie. These events allow children to come in contact with firefighters and see the gear, equipment and tools that are used to help residents of the city.

Department members assist fourth-grade elementary school teachers with the Junior Fire Safety Program each winter. They also visit many block parties during National Night Out each August.
