Our “Fire Prevention” program is a joint effort by the Fire Department and the Fire Prevention Bureau and for many years this has been a very successful program for the children and adults of Harrison. We operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to protect and serve the residents of Harrison to the best of our ability. We are Firefighters, but our helmets represent many jobs ... jobs that we do every day with dignity, compassion, education and love for our community, the Town of Harrison.
