Fire Education

Public Education & Training Services
The Fire Education section is responsible for developing and implementing programs that will increase the public's awareness of fire safety. This includes an annual fire safety program for Maui County schools, which has proven to be worthwhile in several instances where children used what they learned and saved lives.

For more fire safety information, messages, and links to other fire safety sites visit our Fire Safety Information & Messages page. All Classes must be requested at least two weeks in advance. The Fire Prevention staff will contact you to confirm availability.
