100 years of fire prevention!

The Farmington Fire Department is teaming up with the National Fire Protection Association® (NFPA®)—the official sponsor of Fire Prevention Week for 100 years—to promote this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign: "Fire won't wait. Plan your escape." Today's homes burn faster than ever. You may have as little as two minutes (or even less time) to safely escape a home fire from the time the smoke alarm sounds. 

Education tools for teachers and families including free downloads are available at firepreventionweek.org.

The Fire Prevention Open House is an opportunity to educate the public about fire safety and preventative measures that you can take to avoid fires or other emergencies in your home.

This is the largest fundraiser the FFAA holds each year, and it provides funding to support your Farmington firefighters. Over the past few years alone, the FFAA has donated over $25,000, which was used to purchase portable radios, automatic external defibrillators, and most recently a live burn fire trailer for department trainings.

We hope you will join us for this family-friendly event with plenty of bingo games, an online silent auction, door prizes, raffles, and our famous turkey sandwiches!
