About Us

The Arkansas Fire Prevention Commission is made up of fire prevention professionals, volunteers, and members of the general public that have a sincere wish to stop the loss of life and property to fire and fire related incidents. The AFPC serves as a voice for current fire prevention issues and as an advisory body to others involved in fire and life safety in Arkansas.

Arkansas has the unfortunate distinction as being one of the top seven states in the U.S. for fire-related deaths and injuries. The AFPC’s goal is to bring public awareness to the dangers of fires in the home and occupied structures and to provide information on how to reduce those risks. In addition, the AFPC studies fire trends, researches current methods of fire safety, promotes programs that reduce the risks of fire injury, and reports the results of these activities annually to the Governor of the State of Arkansas.

The AFPC serves the State of Arkansas and the Fire Service Community by networking with the Arkansas Fire Services Training Academy, the Arkansas Fire Marshal’s Office, and the Arkansas Department of Emergency Management.
