Frisco Fire Safety Town offers safety education programs to Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts in kindergarten through 5th grade. Our scout programs occur during the school year mid-September through May, and are offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 3:45 p.m. Each program lasts 45 minutes to 1 hour and is taught by a Frisco firefighter. A short classroom presentation is followed by a hands-on activity. The program ends with a 10-minute bike ride in the village. Class size is limited to 20 scouts.
Registration for the 2017-2018 school year scout programs will run August 7th through April 27th. All registrations are done online and must be done at least one week prior to date of program.
