The Buckeye Fire-Medical-Rescue Department (BFMRD) is proud to partner with its community in a variety of ways. BFMRD offers programs for Buckeye’s youth members including the Youth Fire Setter Program as well as the Fire Pals Program.
Youth Fire Setter Program
BFMRD has taken on the task of reducing the life safety risks and monetary losses associated with juveniles involved in fire play. BFMRD has adopted a multi-level approach to the education and/or treatment of identified juveniles involved in fire setting behaviors. The program is adaptable for pre-school ages through teens. Participation in the program is voluntary except for those referred by juvenile authorities. The program consists of five parts, each phase has a unique role in the process, yet all are interconnected. The five parts are: identification, education, assessment, referral and follow-up. These services are offered free of charge to the citizens of Buckeye.
Referral is the key. We cannot make our community a safer place if those experimenting with fire play are not referred into the program. Please keep a watchful eye out and do not hesitate to contact us using the following forms.
Our Fire PALS program focuses on fire and life safety education for preschool age children through third graders. We send our qualified educators to elementary schools within the city limits to provide this awareness and education. Topics covered included Firefighter and Emergency awareness, Lifesaving techniques such as, Stop, Drop and Roll as well as general household, kitchen, water and fire safety information.
