Community Events

The Temple Fire & Rescue Department strives to provide effective fire safety education with the most current and up-to-date information about numerous fire safety conditions. Community Safety and Education Office personnel are primarily responsible for fire prevention education and outreach services in the City of San Antonio. Our strategy to reduce fire deaths and injuries is to focus on prevention by identifying and rectifying unsafe behaviors.
