East Point Fire : Community Programs

Most fires and accidents in the City of East Point occur as a result of human error and involve single-family homes. In order to prevent these disasters from occurring, it is imperative that we reach the people who live in these homes and in our neighborhoods. Community based Fire Service Delivery is one of the Fire Chief’s top strategic initiatives. The City of East Point Fire Department has several community programs aimed to educate the many residents, neighborhood groups, places of worship, and businesses that call East Point home.

We host an annual ceremony and dinner to honor the East Point residents, our valued business community and our brave firefighters for their meaningful contributions to the city.

This is an annual event hosted each October by the City of East Point Fire Department that is aimed to educate area students about Fire Prevention. This event is done in conjunction with the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) and several local businesses. We teach about fire safety though multiple teaching modalities, including interactive skits, puppet show, and songs.

Fire representatives visit schools in East Point upon request to talk about the exciting careers that can be found in the Fire Service. We also discuss the skills and requirements needed to become a Firefighter.
