Public Education


The Village of Hoffman Estates Fire Department believes that the best way to protect the residents of, and those visiting, Hoffman Estates is to teach them how to be safe. In line with this belief, the Fire Department has created this Public Education page for you to learn the “safety essentials” so that you can protect yourself, your family, and your community. But don’t worry, we will still be here when you need us.

Below are links to what we consider to be essential safety information. Included in this information are some courses that we offer to help build up your knowledge and skills for when your time comes to take action.

On this page, you will find the schedule for our available CPR classes, along with prices and locations.

On this page, you will find information about one of our favorite offerings, Citizen’s Fire Academy. This course is 10 weeks long and helps you builds a foundation of understanding for Fire Suppression and Safety.

There is no better way to guarantee our future than by educating our children. Because we believe this statement to be true, the Hoffman Estates Fire Department offers to go to your child’s school (from Pre-K to 4th grade) to educate your children some of the basics of Fire Safety.
