public education & preparedness

Public Education is an essential part of what the Everett Fire Department does. Even though we provide a highly trained professional fire department that are ready to assist you 24/7, we’d prefer to prevent or prepare you for an emergency before it happens.

Everett Fire Department offers a wide range of public education for fire prevention, injury prevention, and disaster preparedness. Our public education and preparedness programs are available year-round and focused on all hazards, all age groups, and all demographic features of our community.

For more information on a particular topic or to request a community education program, please see the options below.
