Services and Programs
The City of Naples Fire Rescue Department recognizes the importance of public fire and life safety education and offers a diverse Fire and Life Safety Education Program to the community. The Fire Prevention Bureau continually assesses the potential risk and hazards in the community and designs, develops and implements new programs accordingly. The programs have two components: prevention/safety and survival. Fire and life safety inspections also provide an excellent opportunity to educate and promote positive interaction with the community.

There is an emphasis placed on educating high-risk populations (Senior citizens and children under the age of 5). Fire does not discriminate and everyone has some level of risk. Therefore, fire and life safety programs are offered for all age groups and different types of occupancies. Below is information on some of programs and services offered.

Programs for all ages

Fire Station Tours

Fire Apparatus Demonstrations
Provide the children with an opportunity to meet the firefighters, learn about the equipment on the Fire Truck, and see a firefighter in gear. They will also have the opportunity to spray water out of a fire hose with a firefighter. All of this helps to alleviate fears children might have and make them better equipped to handle emergencies. This demonstration is appropriate for all age groups.

Fire Drills

Juvenile Firesetter Intervention Program
The City of Naples Fire Rescue Department is part of a multi-agency program that involves working with the other fire districts, the 2 dependent fire departments and another municipal fire department in conjunction with the Naples Police, Collier County Sheriffs Department, Department of Juvenile Justice, Department of Agriculture, Collier County School Board, State Attorney’s Office of the Twentieth Judicial Circuit, Florida Division of Forestry, Florida State Fire Marshals Office and the National Alliance on Mental Illness.

Children ages 3-17 maybe selected as candidates for this program. Children may enter the program voluntarily or court ordered to complete the program.

The Juvenile Firesetter Intervention Program includes lecture, video, reading and written assignments. Parents/Guardian is required to attend a portion of the class. The class is approximately 8 hours in duration, delivered over several days.

Since 2006, the City of Naples Fire-Rescue Department has had four (4) children attend the Juvenile Firesetter Intervention Program. Of the four children, 3 participated in the program on a voluntary basis and one (1) child was court ordered to complete the program. All four children were male. The ages ranged from 5 years old to 8 years old. All four children lived in low-income housing and were unsupervised at the time of the incident. The child who was court ordered to successfully complete the Juvenile Firesetter Program, had his charges changed from felony arson to criminal mischief a misdemeanor charge. This provides the child with a one time only second chance and will afford him the ability to receive future college scholarships and better employment options. None of these children have been caught playing with fire since completing the program.
