Fire Prevention

Our mission is fire prevention through education.

We teach people of all ages how to make responsible choices regarding health and safety. One of our most important commitments is to give people the knowledge and skills they need to lead safer lives. The easiest fire to fight and survive is the one that never happens. Brooklyn Park Fire Department speaks to more than 15,000 people every year about fire prevention!

Fire safety at home

Brooklyn Park Fire and the National Fire Protection Association has many helpful resources regarding fire safety at home. Check out these topics to stay up to date with fire prevention methods.

Recreational Fires

Recreational fires include bonfires and fire pits. Small campfires are allowed in Brooklyn Park year round for recreational or religious purposes only. Campfires are allowed if you follow all recreational fire requirements.

No permit is needed for campfires. If you’re thinking of something larger like a bonfire, then a permit is required.
