The department also provides Fire Prevention and Fire Safety programs and printed materials for citizens and community groups. Business and facility fire inspections may also be scheduled by contacting this department. Information on controlled burning may be reviewed from this site and should be coordinated through the department in advance of the proposed burn. County-issued burn bans are monitored by the department and a burn ban flag flies in front of the station when a ban is in effect for Madison County.

The department meets each Monday night and holds a minimum of two training drills per month.
