Fire Safety Education & Outreach

The Rutherford County Fire Marshal's Office is responsible for coordinating and delivering fire safety education events throughout the county.  The FMO's fire/life safety educators and fire suppression staff routinely visit schools, attend community events, host station visits, and many other public relations events in the effort to reduce the loss of life by fire.

The education and outreach section also coordinates the FREE installation of smoke alarms in home that are in need.  Smoke alarms reduce your chances of dying in a home fire by 50%!  If you need for smoke alarms, please contact our Administrative office at (615) 867-4626.
