The CERT Program educates residents about disaster preparedness for hazards that may affect their neighborhoods and community, and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.  Using the training learned in the classroom and through disaster drills, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following a disaster when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.

CERT members have played a vital role in our recovery services during Hurricanes Francis, Jeanne, and Wilma.   To find out more or to become a CERT member, visit our Emergency Management page.

In 1925, President Calvin Coolidge declared Fire Prevention Week an official national observance. Ever since, the Sunday through Saturday period containing the October 9 anniversary of the 1871 Chicago Fire has been the focus of an annual fire-safety awareness campaign sponsored by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).

Each year there is a new theme announced in July. For 2013, it will be "Prevent Kitchen Fires!"  Hallandale Beach Fire Rescue will be conducting presentations at the local schools and hosting a city wide coloring and essay contest. Local sponsors award a first, second, and third place gift certificate for each grade level at our Local Daycares, Hallandale Elementary, Gulfstream Middle, and Hallandale High School. 2013's Fire Prevention Week was sponsored by the Rotary Club of Hallandale Beach – Aventura. This year, Fire Prevention Week will be observed October 6-12, 2013.

“Operation Heartbeat” is a ground breaking public access defibrillation program designed by Hallandale Beach Fire Rescue to place AEDs (Automatic External Defibrillators) throughout the community.  An AED is a medical device that analyzes the heart’s rhythm.  If necessary, it delivers an electrical shock, known as defibrillation, which helps the heart re-establish an effective rhythm, and saving that person's life.  If you've ever seen someone take out some pads and yell "clear!" before putting them on someone's chest, you've seen an AED.

In Phase One of this project, the City, through the Department of Fire Rescue, has placed AEDs in all publicly accessed, City-owned buildings, Police patrol vehicles, and Fire Rescue staff vehicles.  Nearly all City employees have been trained on the application and use of AEDs, making the City of Hallandale Beach a safer place to work and live.

Phase Two involves the placement of AEDs in eligible condominiums and businesses throughout the City and providing CPR and AED training to the participants.  Once training is completed, an AED is placed at their location.  For more information regarding eligibility, please contact EMS Division Chief Mark Ellis.

The next time you're in a public place, check the walls and see if there's an AED nearby.  You may have Operation Heartbeat to thank for it!

It is estimated that over two million young people run away from home each year. Increasing numbers of kids are also being put out of their homes by disinterested, frustrated, or abusive parents. On the streets, these youths are vulnerable to many dangers. They are significantly more likely to commit suicide. Without help, their future is uncertain.

Safe Place offers access to immediate help for any youth experiencing a crisis situation. All Hallandale Beach Fire Rescue Stations are designated as a Safe Place. Any teen in crisis can come to a Fire Rescue Station and receive the help they need.

Each year in the weeks preceding Hallandale High School's Prom a Mock DUI Car Crash Presentation is performed for the Junior and Senior Class. This program is a support by multiple agencies and local sponsors including Hallandale High School CSI Club, Hallandale Beach Fire Rescue, Hallandale Beach Police Department, BSO Air Rescue, Broward County School Board, Interstate Removal Service, Allstate and AAAA Crosstown Towing, an.

Public safety personnel and student actors stage a mock prom night car crash due to negligence and being under the influence of alcohol. Students watch firefighters free prom-goers trapped in the car, as police officers comfort the injured and take statements, as the BSO helicopter picks up a critically injured patient, while Interstate Removal Service goes through the process of responding to a deceased victim. In the end, the driver is handcuffed and taken away, charged with operating a vehicle under the influence.

After witnessing this mock drill a closing presentation asks all students to sign a pledge vowing to not drive under the influence. This program focuses on helping the students have a safe prom and hopefully helping them make safer decisions for the rest of their lives.

The primary focus is to educate children 14 and under on all of the issues as they relate to the eight major statistical risk areas.

Hallandale Beach is a member of the Broward County Risk Watch Coalition, which assists in the implementation of the Risk Watch Curriculum in every Pre-K through Grade 8 classroom in Broward County.
