Zionsville Fire Department (ZFD) Firefighters visit every school grades K-2 during fire safety awareness month each year.
Firefighters participate in the annual Saint Vincent NICU/PICU picnic at Lions Park.
Throughout the year, ZFD firefighters visit numerous pre-schools in the community and teach about fire safety. Here kids get up close and personal as they get to touch the firefighter gear.
During community events, firefighters present a program called Sparky’s
Closet. Kids and even parents can get dressed up in firefighter gear and
get their picture taken. Did you know that a firefighter’s full gear
