To schedule a visit by a Midland firefighter or for more information on educational programs, contact the Fire Department’s administrative office at 989-837-3410, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Firefighting crews conduct educational programs in Midland Public Schools by appointment. Students learn basic fire safety tips such as stop, drop and roll and E.D.I.T.H. (Exit Drills in the Home) techniques. They also learn that matches are dangerous and shouldn’t be played with. Firefighters will display their personal protective gear and give tours of a fire truck.
Youth counseling services are offered through a program called Fire Starters, and referrals for additional counseling may be made on a case-by-case basis.
Educational programs for groups are geared more toward fire extinguisher training and the importance of smoke detectors. Question and answer sessions also take place during these educational training sessions.
