Stickney Fire Department Public Education

The mission of the Stickney Fire Department is to safeguard the lives and property of the citizens of Stickney, by providing fire prevention and public education programs, effective and efficient fire suppression, emergency medical, rescue and other emergency services.

As you can see by our mission statement, public education plays a very important role in the protection of our citizens and their property.  The Stickney Fire Department offers several services and programs to our citizens and community groups to help with this mission.  Our firefighter's visit each of our grammar schools and pre-schools each year during fire prevention week.  We also provide programs to our senior organizations ranging from home safety to escaping their homes in the event of a fire.  The Department also offers public CPR classes each year.  The Department also has members that are nationally trained and certified through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration as Child Passenger Safety Technicians.  You can call the department at (708) 795-6333 and schedule and inspection of your child's safety seat free of charge.

If you have any questions about our programs or would like to schedule the Stickney Fire Department at your event or meeting please contact us at (708) 795-6333.

Practice Exit Drills In The Home E.D.I.T.H.

Everyone should have an exit plan in the event of a fire in their home and/or work place.  You should practice this plan with your family at least twice a year.  You should know two ways out of every room in your house and work place.  Make sure you know how to get out of the building if your first way is blocked by smoke or fire.  If you can't get out you need to know what to do.  NEVER HIDE, GO OUTSIDE!!!
