South Bay Fire Department Events


Community Risk Reduction

The South Bay Fire Department is dedicated to Community Risk Reduction. We provide educational assemblies to our local schools and are happy to provide educational programs to home owner groups and organizations within our service area.

Local preschools, daycares and children’s organizations can contact us for scheduled tours of the station and fire safety presentations.


If you are interested in scheduling a tour or have questions about our programs, please contact us.

Disaster Preparedness

After an emergency, you may need to survive on your own
for several days. Being prepared means having your own
food, water and other supplies to last for at least 72 hours.
A disaster supplies kit is a collection of basic items your
household may need in the event of an emergency.

Fire Prevention

More than 5,000 Americans die each year in fires and approximately 21,000 are injured. An overwhelming number of fires occur in the home.


Fire safety and survival begin with everyone in your household being prepared.

Fireworks Safety

The Office of the State Fire Marshal is committed to promoting injury prevention and fire safety during the celebrations of Independence Day and New Year’s when fireworks are often used.
