Fire Prevention & Education

Child Safety Seat Program

Choosing and using a car seat correctly makes a big difference in safety.  Four out of five car seats are used improperly.   Tragically, many children are not secured at all.  Most crashes occur close to home on roads with low speed limits.  When used correctly, car seats can prevent injuries and save lives. ''I never thought it would happen to me'', is no excuse and will not bring them back.  Secure children properly every time they ride.

If you would like to have your car seat inspected, please call First Station #1 at 248-627-4000.  Firefighter/MEDIC David Castle is a certified Child Safety Restraint Technician.  Call and make your appointment today.


Fire Prevention

Protection through prevention is the goal of Brandon Fire Department.  Ten times a day, on average, someone in the United States dies in a home fire.  Fire can happen in any home.  The mission of our prevention is to save lives, and minimize injury, and property loss from fire.


Fire Prevention in Brandon Schools

The fire department visits all classrooms in the school district from Kindergarten through fourth grade.  These programs include prevention lessons in the classroom curriculum.  Puppet programs, videos, handout materials, all of which is the first step to know your enemy, learn how fire happens and how it kills.

The department provides programs for visits to Co-Op schools and home schools in Brandon Township, upon the request of the Fire Prevention Coordinator, Captain/Medic Billy Starr.
