The Meridian Fire Department is committed to the safety and education of the community it serves. Community Risk Reduction is a vital part of how we best serve the community. It is our belief that most fires and accidents can be prevented. Our goal is to provide every citizen within our city and rural community the highest level of safety awareness training available. We do everything within our power to prevent emergencies before they start; sometimes emergencies happen, so providing training to minimize the risk of an emergency is an important element in our education programs as well. The department best prepares our citizens through our Community Risk Reduction and Public Education programs.
