Welcome to the Fire Prevention Week Page!

The Fire Prevention page was started in 2010.  Every year, the Swansea Fire Department puts countless hours into Fire Prevention Week and making it a success.  The most common day is Public Safety Day which starts off with a parade through town, and an open house at Station 2 (Headquarters).   This page shows what we believe to be the most important part of fire prevention week. 

Fire Chief Peter J Burke teaching students the importance of smoke detectors.

Throughout the week, we visit pre-school's and all the elementary schools in the town of Swansea.  Chief Peter J. Burke, Deputy Chief Antone Miranda, S.A.F.E. officer Richard Rego and firefighters volunteering their own time take the time to teach the children at these schools the importance of smoke detectors, fire evacuation plans, match & lighter safety, "Stop, Drop & Roll," and many other fire safety issues.   Weather permitting, the visit ends with a tour of fire apparatus we bring to the school and a firefighter climbs 100 feet on the aerial ladder, and waves at the children from above.  The week is very fun for the firefighters and the children, but also very important.  Please feel free to click on the links to the left to browse through pictures from our visits this year.
