Education & Outreach
About
Public Education and Outreach is a component of the Fire Prevention Division designed to implement activities and awareness efforts in the schools and community. Linda Greenidge serves as the Fire Department’s Public Education and Outreach Coordinator. Main program areas and services are summarized below.

Community Emergency Response Team
The Community Emergency Response Team (C.E.R.T.) actively prepares for the delivery of immediate life-saving and life-sustaining skills to assist residents following a major disaster prior to the availability of first responder services. With training in fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization and disaster medical operations, C.E.R.T. members are prepared to help their neighborhoods or workplaces following an event that requires large-scale, immediate emergency response. This is just one of many initiatives that benefit the City’s overall readiness to handle emergency situations. If you are interested in becoming a C.E.R.T. member, contact Dave Campbell at 469.371.1018.

Education Programs
The Public Education and Outreach Division of the Allen Fire Department works closely with local educators to deliver fire and life safety prevention programs and other activities such as safety fairs and mobile classroom presentations. The division also maintains a video library for featuring films on fire safety, 9-1-1 awareness and other relevant topics.

Apparatus displays are available for schools, preschools, day care centers and special events. Displays are not available at private residences and all display requests must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance.
