Tens of thousands of our country's families learned more about fire safety and home fire hazards through the interactive Fire Safety Pledge Program sponsored by Liberty Mutual.  Each time a family tested their fire safety knowledge with a short quiz and was then credited a point to their local fire department. The Cincinnati Fire Department was one of only two departments honored in the large fire department category.Cincinnati Fire Department

The $10,000 award will be used for the Safe Summer Nights Program.  This program allows the fire companies to target neighborhoods from May to October. They are handing out free smoke alarms, batteries, and carbon monoxide alarms for those in need. It will also be used to increase educational programming for the public.

The Cincinnati Fire Department (CFD) was organized in 1853 and is the nation’s oldest, fully-paid professional fire department.
