Allen Fire Department uses quality simulation and training equipment to deliver a lifelike educational experience. If you have any questions about our programs, email Public Education Coordinator Jill Hernandez or call 214.509.4413.
Children can enjoy an up-close look at an ambulance, fire truck or engine.
Bunker Gear Presentation:
Firefighters show what they look like before and after they are called to a fire. This program is designed to prepare children not to be afraid of firefighters when they have to come into a home. This presentation is also available in a pre-recorded video for visits that cannot occur in person.
Fire Extinguisher Training:
A digital fire simulator lets users experience fire extinguisher operations while remaining indoors. This is a safe, smoke-free training.
Fire Station Tours:
Schedule a fire station tour by calling our Public Education Coordinator at 214.509.4413 or call a member of the Educational Outreach Division at 214.509.4420.
This mobile classroom is equipped with lifelike simulations to educate people of all ages on what to do when a fire strikes in the kitchen or outside of a bedroom.
Smoke House Simulation:
An instructor uses a furnished, two-story plexiglass doll house to demonstrate how quickly smoke fills each level of a house. The demonstration teaches the importance of keeping the bedroom door closed and shows the methods firefighters use to ventilate a smoke filled home.
