Community Education

Fire Safety and Education Programs

The North Platte Fire Department offers a variety of educational and informational programming to the public.

Smoke Detectives

This is a very popular fire safety program designed for kids. It is endorsed by the International Association of Fire Fighters and the National Association of Elementary School Principals.

North Platte Firefighters teach area school third graders the basics of fire safety and inspire them to become smoke detectives too.

Station Tours

 Tours of fire stations are available to school and citizen groups on a limited basis and will be scheduled at a convenient time for both NPFD personnel and citizens. These tours are conducted by on-duty firefighters in service (available for calls) who work at the specified fire station requested. The tour includes what comprises a “typical” day at the fire station, along with a description of the fire equipment used during various types of emergency incidents.


***If interested in a Station Tour or Rig/Equipment Demo please contact City Fire Marshal  at (308) 535-6768***
