Programs offered by Allen Fire Department


  • Apparatus Display Presentation: 

    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.
  • 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.
  • Safety Trailer: 

    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.
