Fire Safety Squad

The Haltom City Fire Safety Squad is an educational characterization group put together by your Haltom City Firefighters. The squad is a part of the Texas LAFS (Life and Fire Safety) Association. The Safety Squad's goal is to reduce injuries caused by fire, or other emergency situations, by educating through puppetry, characterization, and clowning.

Fire safety week takes place annually in October. During this time the Safety Squad clowns will be out visiting schools in the Birdville Independent School District. The Safety Squad focuses on a variety of topics, including when and why to call 911, EDITH (Exit Drills In The Home), tools vs. toys, bicycle safety, gun safety, pool safety, and much, much more!

Although the clowns focus primarily on fire safety week, you can see them throughout the year at various city functions.

The Safety Squad consists of:

  • Derek Paradise as BOGO
  • Nick Diemicke as Tiller
  • Tim Killian as Capt. Vinny
  • Carlos Vaquera
