Welcome to the Division of Fire & Life Safety

Education Resource Page

Eliminating the causes of fires and unintentional injuries across our community is valuable to the members of Midway Fire Rescue. To assist you with these efforts, our team in the Division of Fire and Life Safety have created a series of Educational Materials to be utilized by you, your family, and your business.  These materials consist of educational guidelines, which outline critical lifesaving instructions you can utilize to prevent an emergency from occurring. There are also several Inspection Forms, which can be utilized by you to perform self-guided inspections on your home or business, allowing you to identify and eliminate hazards which lead to fires and injuries across our community.

Our staff is available to deliver Fire and Life Safety Presentations to you, your family, community organization, or business team.
