In 1975, the Virginia Beach Fire Department hired its first Life Safety Specialist. With that hiring, Virginia Beach became one of the first cities/counties to have a full-time civilian education position.
Today the Virginia Beach Fire Department Life Safety Education Office continues to educate the citizens of Virginia Beach with one Supervisor, four-full time Life Safety Specialists.
The Life Safety Education Office staff directly contacts over 60,000 Virginia Beach citizens each year with life-saving information through various programs.
