The Community Risk Reduction Officers participate in many events throughout the city. These events include trainings conducted at business, senior living centers and schools regarding fire extinguishers and fire safety. They also participate in health fairs and career fairs. Throughout the year tours are given to different groups and communities in West Fargo.
Each October is Fire Safety Month, which means our officers teach fire safety and give tours to the kindergarten classes, and also go to the schools to teach the 1st and 2nd grade classes about fire safety.
Each year the fire department partners with the American Red Cross to check and install new smoke detectors within a target area of the community. This is released through social media and mail each year to let that neighborhood know ahead of the event.
