Fire Prevention

The Fort Osage Fire Protection District provides fire prevention/education to the residents of the 110 sq. mile area we serve. This area includes the Fort Osage School District with 4 elementary schools, a middle, junior and senior high school complexes.

Education is provided by personnel visiting the schools and civic organizations with presentations ranging from basic fire safety and prevention to CPR classes. We also provide station tours and participate annually in Fire Prevention week and Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery campaigns.

Kitchen Safety and Fire Extinguisher Classes:
This course is taught to eighth grade students in the junior high home economics class. The course is a two day seminar that emphasizes kitchen safety and also instructs students on how to extinguish pan and oven fires. The course is completed with all students extinguishing a fire in a pan. Although the course is taught primarily to the eighth grade students, it can be adapted to your group as well..
