Since 1997, the Holliston Fire Department annually has been fortunate to receive S.A.F.E. (Student Awareness of Fire Education) Grants from the Executive Office of Public Safety. The S.A.F.E. program is a fire prevention education program designed to equip elementary, intermediate, and high school students with skills for recognizing the dangers of fire, specifically, the fire hazards smoking-related materials pose. The program utilizes specially trained firefighters to teach fire and life safety education.
The Department also makes educational presentations to numerous day care centers, community groups and organizations.
Due to his commitment to fire education, the Fire Chief is a member of the Massachusetts Fire and Life Safety Education Task Force. He has also delivered courses for the Massachusetts Firefighting Academy in their Modern Concepts in Fire Education series. He has also been a workshop presenter at the Fire and Life Safety Education Conference, and was involved in the re-development of the Academy's 40 hour PFLSE (Public Fire and Life Safety Educator) course
