S.A.F.F.E. Day

The Kilgore Fire Department is excited to be the host for Special Abilities Family Fun Event (S.A.F.F.E.) Day. The event is designed to focus on anyone with special needs or abilities. The day is for people with special needs and their families, allowing them to participate in fun, educational, and exciting activities that are free.


Most activities are fire service and safety oriented such as:

  • Balloons
  • Clowns
  • Educational booths to get assistance
  • Entertainment
  • Face painting
  • Fire obstacle course
  • Free food
  • Hose spraying to put out house fires and ring a bell
  • Ride in the fire truck
  • Safety puppet shows
  • Soar into the air in a fire department aerial platform

This is a special day that rewards all, participants, firefighters, city employees, and volunteers to make this event successful.


In 2016, there were approximately 2,500 people in attendance of S.A.F.F.E. Day.
