SFFD Community Safety Fair Schedule

The San Francisco Fire Department is conducting Community Safety Fairs throughout the year in each of our 10 Battalions.  This is an effort to engage the communities we serve with their local Firefighters, EMT’s and Paramedics, to allow local communities to meet the members of their nearby Fire Stations, and to provide them with an overview of what we do.

Participating at each Community Safety Fair are the following:

  1. Public Information Officer with media
  2. Bureau of Fire Prevention Education Team
  3. Fire Recruitment Team
  4. EMS Medics for Hands only CPR and BP and Stop the Bleed
  5. Battalion members participation to meet the people they serve
  6. NERT for disaster preparedness
  7. Department of Emergency Management for 911calls and Disaster Preparedness

Community Safety Fairs will include Fire Prevention and Education materials, demonstrations such as how to use a Fire Extinguisher, and answers to inspection questions.  Department members will teach hands-only CPR, and our Recruitment team will be available to answer questions related to our Departments hiring process.  Free Smoke detectors will be available while supplies last to residents of San Francisco. 

After participating in our demonstrations, community members may be eligible to receive a fire extinguisher and other services from that organization if applicable. Click here to fill out an application with Rebuilding Together SF.

After participating in our demonstrations if you require assistance with installing a smoke/carbon monoxide detector please contact our partner's at the American Red Cross- Bay Area Chapter.

San Francisco Fire Department’s enhanced Fire Prevention and Education Team promotes fire safety through Community Outreach and Education.  For more information, please see: Fire Safety Education Outreach Program
