Public Information


The Monroe Fire Department is very active in educating our citizens about the dangers of fire and how to plan for such an emergency.  Through educational programs in our schools to pre-fire plans and inspections of schools and business in our city, we are eager to work with our citizens about preventing fire.


For those who wish to explore many of the sites on the Internet offering supplemental information, we offer these links as a start.  Note, that some of these links may take you away from this site.


One of the best ways to help survive a fire related emergency is to educate yourself and your family about what to do before, during, and after the fire.  The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has an informative site addressing all three.




The United States Fire Administration has a comprehensive site with information for all ages.







Before the Fire

Every household should have a plan in place in the event of an emergency.  Families should plan in advance the proper exits, meeting places, and other strategies when an fire happens.  Many good informational websites are available to assist. 


“KidsHealth” has a site written for kids to help them understand why exit drills are important. 




During the Fire

It’s equally important to understand in advance some very necessary strategies for what to do if you awaken to the sound of your smoke detector or to the smell of smoke, and how to give you and your family the best chance of escaping safely.




After the Fire

With the fire completely out and the firefighters leaving the scene, what happens next? Here’s an article on what to do to help recover from the fire.
