Public Education

Introduction to Public Education

Contra Costa County Fire Protection District

The Public Education Unit of Contra Costa County Fire Protection District consists of one part-time Fire Prevention Specialist who conducts public education programs when not assigned to the Exterior Hazard Control Division during the months of May through October.

Despite a long-term downward trend, the United States continues to have one of the highest fire death rates per capita in the world. Part of the reason for this is the lack of adequate public fire education resources nationwide. It is a proven fact that educating the public in matters of fire and life safety reduces casualties.

Simply stated, the goal of our Public Education Unit is that all of our citizens, from preschoolers to senior citizens, will learn the proper action to take in a sudden fire or life emergency. We have a number of programs and tools to accomplish this goal. Our vision is a fire district where no one suffers a fire injury or death due to a lack of knowledge or preparation.

To contact the Public Education Unit, please call (925)941-3300 x1508. Brochures and printed information are available year-round. Public Education presentations may be scheduled from October through April.
