Our Public Fire Education program plans and facilitates involvement in a variety of local events including school classroom presentations, station tours (for children, groups of all ages) and appearances at birthday parties and other celebrations. During “Fire Safety Week”, we provide fire safety talks and demonstrations to the students at Lenoir City schools. Our personnel are available to answer any questions you have. Additionally, we provide fire extinguisher demonstrations, instructions and training, a smoke detector donation program for financially challenged families and smoke house training (for children). To make a request for materials or to schedule an event, please contact us at 865-986-9418, or email LCFD1 @ lenoircitytn.gov.
Many businesses are required to have their employees instructed or trained in the use of fire extinguishers. Instruction involves an individual learning the types of fires and what types of fire extinguisher is appropriate for use on each type of fire, as well as learning how to use a fire extinguisher. Training involves instruction as well as hands-on practical exercises in the use of fire extinguishers (actually using a fire extinguisher to extinguish a controlled fire).
The following link is an online fire extinguisher class that provides instruction on fire extinguishers, complete with a quiz upon completion. It also provides the ability to print a certificate of instruction upon successful completion of the quiz. This is a valuable resource for instruction in the use of fire extinguishers in the home as well. www.FireExtinguisher.com

Fire alarm systems are expected to help protect people, property, and assets. But you can’t tell if they’re fully operational just by looking at them. As a general rule, devices should be tested on a bi-annual basis and given a visual inspection.
- Keep anything that can burn at least three feet away from heating equipment, like the furnace, fireplace, wood stove, or portable space heater.
- Have a three-foot “kid-free zone” around open fires and space heaters.
- Never use your oven to heat your home.
- Have a qualified professional install stationary space heating equipment, water heaters or central heating equipment according to the local codes and manufacturer’s instructions.
- Have heating equipment and chimneys cleaned and inspected every year by a qualified professional.
- Remember to turn portable heaters off when leaving the room or going to bed.
- Always use the right kind of fuel, specified by the manufacturer, for fuel-burning space heaters.
- Make sure the fireplace has a sturdy screen to stop sparks from flying into the room. Ashes should be cool before putting them in a metal container. Keep the container a safe distance away from your home.
- Test smoke alarms monthly.
