Request a Presentation, FDNY Fire Safety Education Program

Thank you for reaching out to the FDNY Fire Safety Education Unit. Our mission is to convey and promote the importance of fire and life safety education. We thrive to educate the public with critical life and saving strategies that focuses on fire prevention, and we do this in the form of a presentation; we do not conduct training sessions or demonstrations.

In order to schedule you for an event, and to make it a success, we need you to provide us with helpful information.

Important Information: Your request must be a minimum of 14 days from the date of this request.

When you provide us with a telephone number please be sure to give us a number we could connect with you on the day prior to the event taking place and the day of the event. We utilize this number in the event we encounter any difficulties. We want to contact you directly (a cell number is preferred). This number will not be shared by any other organization.

If you are seeking to schedule a table set-up, please be sure to provide us with the exact address of where the presentation will take place. You may provide additional instructions in the “comments” box. Table set-ups consist of distributing fire safety literature and promotional items. Please know, we do not provide table set-ups for under two hours; events must be for two plus hours.

If you are seeking a presentation, please know our presentations are typically 35 minutes in length (approximately one hour with Q&A). We can also curtail them to meet your needs. Please know we do not provide a table set-up when we conduct presentations, but we do distribute fire safety literature and promotional items.

If you are seeking a virtual presentation, most virtual platforms will work for us, except for googlemeets. The firewall securities established by DOE leads us to having technical difficulties. We advise utilizing a different platform.

Upon receiving the required information, we will send you a confirmation email stating your event has been officially scheduled or if an alternate date is needed. If you have special instructions, please include them on the “comments” box.

If you have to cancel the event, please be sure to notify us as soon as possible. We designate a sizeable amount of resources, staff and time to make your event successful. It is our goal to have great working relations with you during this event and in the future.

For school presentations only: If you are requesting multiple class presentations, please provide us with three dates. Since we may not be able to present to all classes on the same day, we may need to break up the classes into different days. You may include the alternate dates in the “comments” box. We typically present up to 12 classes per day. Depending on the number of classes we address, will determine the number of educators and resources we need to allocate. Also, know that the educator(s) will go from class to class, simultaneously, and back-to-back (no breaks are needed); therefore upon their arrival, please provide the educator(s) with a schedule indicating which class they will instruct first, second, etc. The presentations are typically 30 minutes in length or a class period, however we can curtail the presentation lengths to meet your needs.

We will confirm this request within 72 hours. Thank you for your assistance and cooperation.
