The Venice Fire Department is pro-active in fire prevention and public education. These programs are available, at no cost, to the public and business community. Topics include home fire safety visits, high-rise condominium safety, mobile home safety, hurricane and storm awareness, extinguisher lectures with live demonstrations, baby-sitting safety, safety for the elderly and a variety of other specially-developed programs to meet the specific needs of the citizens of Venice.
October is fire safety month for the department. During this time, special station tours are provided to hundreds of local children. These tours promote home and fire safety at a level which the children can understand. The Family Fire Safety House is an integral part of this public education outreach. The Family Fire Safety House is a specialized trailer to teach and promote fire safety throughout the home. It also participates in community events throughout the year.
In the fall, when you turn your clocks back, and in the spring, when you move your clocks up, put fresh batteries in your smoke detector.
