Public education is a necessity for our community, especially starting with our youth.  The Willows Fire Department is proud of our public outreach and very much interested in providing this service; through station tours, school visits and other social events throughout the year.  The Willows Fire Department has been providing the service since 1978, and through the years has enriched the program with many new ideas and tools.

One such tool has been the Glenn County fire safety house.  The safety house has helped the program by allowing kids to get a realistic learning experience; by having a setting much like one at their own homes.  It allows us to talk with the kids about fire safety in different areas of a home and allows the added feature of “fake” smoke; allowing us to show them how it may be with smoke in a room, and what to do in a real situation.
