The heart and soul of the new Boynton Beach Fire Rescue website is devoted to Fire Safety and Prevention. “A big part of the job for modern day fire rescue is fire prevention as much as it is fire suppression,” said Steve Lewis, Community Relations Specialist & Public Information Officer for Boynton Beach Fire Rescue.

In order to meet their objective of serving as a resource to educate the public about fire prevention, BBFRD will devote entire sections of the BBFRD website to topics such as Fire Facts, Safety Tips, Hurricane Preparedness, Disaster Preparedness, FAQs, CERT, CPR-AED Programs, and extensive information about fire safety and prevention best practices.

There are numerous links to other useful resources, including a link to Sparky The Fire Dog’s website for kids (NFPA), and target specific resources for the residents of Boynton Beach, Florida, or the global citizenry of cyberspace. If you have any questions regarding fire safety or prevention, a list of staff and their responsibilities is available through the Contact Us section of the website.
