Boy Scout and Girl Scout Badge work
The SFD is honored and happy to help scout troops prepare and complete badge work requirements as it pertains to emergencies, safety, and preparedness. Please give the fire department a call with all of the info pertaining to the badge your troop or pack is trying to complete. We will build a PowerPoint presentation and teach your scouts all they need to complete the badge work. This could include disaster training, first aid, fire escape planning, and fire safety.

The Sharonville Fire Department in conjunction with the Police Department participates in Safety Camp each June. Safety camp is a one-week program during the Recreation Department’s annual summer camp schedule. During this week the campers attend talks on safety topics including fire safety, bicycle safety and helmets, internet safety, first aid, and animal safety among many others. The campers also get to interact with members of the local bomb squads and S.W.A.T. units. They also get to see helicopters from law enforcement and local hospitals up close. Nature talks and walks at Sharon Woods and visits from the SPCA are always popular days. The tour and water day at the firehouse is always the highlight of the week. The kids are treated to pizza and drinks courtesy of the fire department and a number of fun obstacle courses and competitions which end with everyone being completely drenched.
