Kids Corner

Tamarac Fire Rescue observes Fire Prevention Month throughout the month of October. Children from all over the community visit our fire stations and participate in our Fire Prevention programs. Tamarac’s firefighters have developed a variety of activities for the kids. They include:

  • A video presentation
  • A Stop, Drop and Roll demonstration
  • Tours of our fire engine and fire station
  • Children flowing water from a real fire hose

In addition to our in-station programs, we also take the show on the road to schools to reach those who cannot make it to the fire station. In 2021, we started an NFPA, Fire Prevention themed Poster and Essay Contest, where winning classes are awarded an ice cream party with Sparky the Fire Dog and fire rescue department personnel. The winners are also recognized at the City Commission meeting and the Chamber of Commerce business meeting
