Public Fire Educators Section
Section Chair's Welcome Letter:
WFC Public Fire Educators is a section of the Washington Fire Chiefs, representing nearly 100 departments throughout the State of Washington. WFC Public Fire Educators Section is dedicated to the reduction of injuries and lives lost due to fire and other hazards through prevention programs.
WFC Public Fire Educators Section Goals:
- The promotion of professional interaction with the citizens of Washington State.
- The standardization of comprehensive educational materials and programs throughout the State of Washington.
- Cooperative development and planning with other fire service divisions, WFC Section and other related organization.
- Educational opportunities for fire and life safety educators.
Members learn together and from each other. Sharing resources and ideas is the mainstay of this organization. We strive for standardization of concepts to serve our communities more effectively and we encourage creativity to personalize and enhance our audience appeal.
Educational opportunities are provided at minimal cost to ensure that public educators are prepared to develop, present, and evaluate their programs - not to mention inspired to present them!
Four business meetings are held annually and the dates are posted to our website. The business of the section is determined at these meetings, so your participation is encouraged and welcomed. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact any Board Member. We will be glad to help in any way possible
The WFC PFE Section is always on the lookout for innovative, creative, friendly educators who wish to help us combat fire and injury in Washington State. As our mission says, we "Ignite Awareness, Extinguish Risk."
