Safety & Education

Safety through education is the best way to keep our citizens safe, and the Tumwater Fire Department is ready to lend a helping hand in providing that education. 

October is Fire Prevention Month

Every October, the Tumwater Fire Department travels to all kindergarten and first grade classrooms, preschools, day cares, and home schooling programs in the City of Tumwater in an effort towards fire safety. During this time, an estimated number of 900-1,000 children receive fire prevention talks from our Fire Fighters in coordination with the National Fire Protection Association’s Fire Prevention Week.

Stay safe in your home and business

Fire prevention and emergency preparedness are practices to maintain in homes and places of business, as well. For an overview of tips on everything from disaster preparedness, to winter weather and holiday safety, we encourage you to look through the safety information compiled for you in the menu on the left-hand side of the page . Remember: a few minutes of consideration could help ensure the safety of yourself and your loved ones in the event of an emergency situation.
