Community Education Programs


Your Safety is our Goal. The Romulus Fire Department offers a wide variety of community education programs to ensure the safety of all its citizens. The fact is, most fires are preventable.

Program Offerings

First Aid CPR & AED Training

You can save a life using only your two hands. Help make our community the safest for surviving a cardiac arrest by participating in compression-only (also known as hands-only) CPR and AED training. Training is ideal for groups of 10-20 and includes hands-on training with mannequins.

Fire Extinguisher Training

Learn how and more importantly, when to use a fire extinguisher during this interactive training program. Training is ideal for groups of 10 to 20 and includes hands-on training with an extinguisher simulator.

Fire Safety Presentations

From preschools to senior communities, we offer fire safety presentations for all ages. A truck visit may be included for children's groups. Fire safety presentations are also available at special events such as school picnics and other community outings.

Station Tours

Station tours are scheduled in advance in order to prepare for age appropriate fire and life safety skills, demonstrations of special firefighting clothing, viewing of fire apparatus, and a walk through of firefighters' training, report writing, kitchen, and rest areas.

Home Safety Surveys & Smoke Detector Installation

Find out what fire hazards are lurking in your home during the free installation of smoke detector(s) conducted by a Romulus Fire Crew.
