A few years back station 13s was converted into an Outreach Center that would allow the El Paso Fire Department to have fire and health safety clinics/demonstrations.
On certain days the SHOC will be visited by pre-schools and daycare centers that wish to learn about fire safety. This gives the El Paso Fire Department’s Fire Prevention Division a chance to reach out and teach the young-ones fire safety. During the visit, the FPD crew will sit down with the children, parents, and teachers to:
- Identify different fire hazards
- Stop Drop and Roll
- What is and how to use a fire extinguisher
- Lastly, let the children explore a fire apparatus.
If you or if you know of someone who would like to visit the SHOC or wish to schedule an appointment please follow this link Presentations and Tours.
