Throughout the year 1,858 children and 429 adults benefited from 38 different fire prevention activities such as station tours, fire extinguisher and smoke house demonstrations. During fire prevention month (October) the firefighters visited the kindergarten, first and second grade classrooms in Dodge City schools to teach kids about fire safety.

Approximately 30 sets of building plans were reviewed for fire safety features prior to construction. Fire prevention inspections were conducted in the effort to identify fire hazards and reduce occupancy overcrowding. 51 fire incidents were investigated by the department to determine their cause.
