About the Committee

Fire Prevention Committee is a non-profit, 501 tax-exempt community-support organization that educates the public in prevention of fires and fire safety.

Our goal is to provide the necessary tools/materials needed to educate the public. We focus on educating children and the elderly in fire prevention and safety techniques to help reduce the loss of life within these particular age groups.

Purpose of the Fire Prevention Committee

The purpose of the Fire Prevention Committee is to educate and inform through education and prevention and to provide an on-going Fire Safety and Fire Prevention Education Program to target senior citizens and children.

The Baton Rouge Fire Prevention Committee is comprised of local citizens and businesses that dedicate their time and funding to support the Baton Rouge Fire Department.

The committee educates the general public in fire prevention, and fire safety techniques. We honor and recognize our firefighters, citizens, businesses and organizations that make outstanding contributions in promoting fire safety.


Donations for our organization are needed and accepted. With your ongoing support we will keep fire prevention and safety through this program.
