Browse Through Our Fire Safety Programs
At Three Points Fire District, we do not just respond to fire and rescue calls. Our team also prevents these from happening by teaching the public about life safety, disaster preparedness, and inspection and code enforcement. As local firefighters and first responders, we play a vital role in promoting public fire safety education in our community.
The Fire District provides Nationally recognized CPR and First-aid classes to residents, and Healthcare workers within the community. These classes are scheduled as needed and in small groups at this time. Please call (520) 822-1086 or fill out our contact sheet to get on the roster.

Car Seat Program
The District has a limited amount of Car Seats and Booster Seats (no infant ones at this time) for District Members. Please call and set up an appointment, you must bring ID and proof of residency to take advantage of this program. Currently, we can only provide the car seats when they are available; we cannot install them. It is highly recommended that these be installed by a Car Seat Technician to ensure the safety of your child. Technicians can be found at our partner departments Drexel Heights Fire District, or Tucson Fire Department, or by contacting the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety. Please call in advance.

Smoke Detector Installation
Through grants, the District provides the community with free Smoke Detectors (while they last), and will also install them. Smoke Detectors help save lives and provide early warning in the event of a fire. Smoke detectors should be in every sleeping area and hallways. A home safety visit from our crews can assist you in identifying your needs, see below for more information.
