Winter Fire Safety

The Fort Worth Fire Department and our partners at the United States Fire Administration (USFA) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) are working together to remind everyone that home fires are more prevalent in winter than in any other season. This is due in part to an increase in cooking and heating fires.

Winter fires can be prevented! Get more information on our Public Education page. Also, the following fire safety tips can help you maintain a fire-safe home this winter season.

Whether you are looking for information on becoming a member of our team, want to know how to keep your home safe, or just need to get a copy of a fire report, you will find the answers right here.

The Fort Worth Fire Department protects one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the country with a wide range of services, including: emergency preparedness, education, prevention, and response. Covering 345 square miles with a dedicated workforce of more than 900 employees, the department has become one of the most efficient and respected in America.

After our humble beginnings as a volunteer department in 1873, we have provided professional service to our citizens and visitors alike since 1893. Since that time, just like the City of Fort Worth itself, we have grown and evolved. Rest assured that we stand ready 24/7 to respond to any emergency.
