Educational Opportunities

The Public Safety Open House, held each fall on Naperville's Public Safety Campus on Aurora Avenue, is one of the many opportunities citizens have each year to interact with and learn from members of the Naperville Fire Department.

Safety and Public Education

Fire and life safety education is an essential component in Naperville Fire Department's mission to safeguard the lives and property of the citizens of Naperville, by providing professional, quality public education programs. Our strategy to reduce fire deaths and injuries is to focus on prevention by identifying and changing the unsafe behaviors. The Naperville Fire Department recognizes the most important defense against fire is awareness through education.

The Naperville Fire Department is continually involved in comprehensive, innovative and outstanding prevention programming. Our Public Education Specialist and the Public Education Team work cooperatively with co-workers, schools, community groups, businesses, volunteer organizations and individual citizens to provide effective fire prevention programs and promote excellent community relations throughout the city.
