Fire Prevention


The Lakeshore Fire Department participates in a wide variety of Fire Prevention activities, with the goal of reducing fire occurrences throughout the community.

Fire Prevention has been adopted within the fire service as a key strategy of reducing human and fire loss. A combined approach is utilized by:

  • Conducting Fire Inspections and,
  • Liaisons with the community through Public Education in a variety of formats.

To administer Fire Prevention Activities, we use a number of different techniques which include:

Mobile Fire Safety Trailer,

  • Hazard House,
  • Public Demonstrations,
  • Home Visitation and
  • Attendance at Community Events.
