Frequently Asked Questions

How can I schedule the safety trailer?
The Safety Trailer is now owned, operated, and offered by El Paso Teller E 9-1-1. To schedule the trailer, call 719-785-1900.
What should I do if my child is showing an interest in playing with fire?
Unfortunately, children misusing fire is the leading cause of child fire casualties. Younger children are more likely to start fires in their home where older children and teenagers are more likely to start fires outside. The Colorado Springs Fire Department created the FireFactor programs to address the youth misuse of fire issues in our community.
