Brentwood Public Safety Day Festival

September 25, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Public Safety Day Festival in Brentwood Tennessee.

The Brentwood Fire and Rescue Department will hold its 10th Annual Public Safety Day Festival from 10am-2pm, Saturday, September 25, 2021, in the City Park Brentwood Shopping Center parking lot located at 330 Franklin Road.  The festival will include children’s activities, fire displays, Brentwood Police officers and 911 Dispatch information, and emergency medical vehicles. There will also be a residential fire sprinkler exhibition, a demonstration of how firefighters use equipment to remove someone trapped following a vehicle accident, and a drone display.  Brentwood’s Fire Safety House will also be on site to help children practice escaping from a smoke-filled room in a safe environment.  If you need a car seat check, licensed professionals will be available to help.

There were 1,400 in attendance in 2019 and the event was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Brentwood Fire and Rescue Chief Brian Goss says “we are happy to be able to safely host this event again this year. It is an excellent way for children and parents to learn about fire safety in a controlled environment with hands on learning.   Children will be able to operate a real fire hose and see firsthand how fast a small room can go up in flames.  This day helps educate our community’s youngest and oldest residents about the responsibility of public safety and what to do if ever they encounter an emergency.”

Event Coordinator and Fire Engineer Steven White says, “Please bring your entire family and neighborhood friends out.  There will be a bounce house, a hazmat trailer, a water spray station, the Brentwood Police Department K-9 unit, DARE officers, free car seat checks, and CPR demonstrations.”   One of the most visual events is the side-by-side house burn demonstration and it will take place around12-noon.  The significance of the side-by-side burn is to show the public how important it is to have working smoke alarms and the value of having your home and/or workplace equipped with fire sprinklers.  “It really shows residents and the public how a sprinkler system works and clears up any myths that television and Hollywood have incorrectly depicted,” White said.

 Station Tours

In addition to the Public Safety Day Festival, all four Brentwood Fire Stations will be open and offering tours on Saturday between 10am-2pm.  Firefighters will be able to discuss station life, explain their duties, and talk about fire safety.

Brentwood’s four stations are located at:

  • •     5211 Maryland Way
  • •     1301 Wilson Pike
  • •     1750 General George Patton Drive
  • •     1300 Sunset Road

If you can’t make it to our station tours, you can still get a sneak peek inside our fire stations by watching a virtual station tour video.  It shows where firefighters sleep at the station, eat, and what equipment is included on a fire truck.   VIDEO: Brentwood Fire and Rescue Virtual Fire Station Tour
