According to the United States Fire Administration, more than 3,500 Americans die each year in fires and approximately 18,300 are injured. Children and the elderly make up the majority of these deaths and injuries. To combat these statistics and prevent tragedy before it happens, we work in the community to implement fire prevention and life safety education.
The South Montgomery County Fire Department (SMCFD) offers the opportunity for citizens to request fire trucks to visit their events, participate in parades, tour a fire station, request the mobile safety trailer, request SMCFD in a parade, give presentations and safety speeches, and more.
When possible, make requests at least two weeks in advance (unless noted otherwise above), as requests are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Restrictions apply, and not all requests may be fulfilled. We’ll contact you if there’s a problem with your request or we’re unable to fulfill it.
