Schools

This City of Hurst's Fire Prevention and Education Programs are directed by the Fire Marshal's Office. The Fire Marshal and a Fire Inspector staff the Fire Prevention and Education division. With the help of the Operations personnel the following programs are completed each year:

Fire Education

Fire Prevention and Operations personnel teach Fire Safety education to over 4000 students each year. The Fire Safety Program for the schools consist of classroom presentations about home fire safety education. After the presentations, the students are challenged to create fire safety posters based upon the material presented during the presentations. The best six posters from each school are placed on display and judged by people from the community and 1st , 2nd and 3rd place awards are presented at a ceremony (typically at Northeast Mall).
