Welcome to Kids Corner - a place to learn about Fire Safety while having fun!
We have a number of activities, games, videos and other media available for kids of all ages. If you have a suggestion for something you'd like to see on this page, send us an email!
Burning Question? Ask a Firefighter!
Do you have a question you'd like to ask a firefighter about? It could be anything from "how heavy are your boots" to "how do you exit a burning home when you're upstairs"? You can email us and put "Burning Question" in the subject line, and we'll send it to a firefighter to answer, both directly to you and on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
Each season, we hold a coloring contest for kids age 4-12. At the end of the month, we share the artwork submitted by each of our young artists, and select a winner to get a gift bag full of Fire-Safety themed goodies!
To enter, download and print the coloring page, then either email the page to us, or send it to this address:
Central Fire District
Attn: Coloring Contest
930 17th Avenue
Santa Cruz, CA 95062
Don't forget to include your first name, age, parents email and phone number with your submission so we can contact you if you win!
Our Spring Coloring Page is about "Fall and Crawl" - if smoke is in the room, fall to the floor and crawl beneath the smoke, until you can get outside to safety! Deadline to submit is May 15th, 2023.
Congratulations to Kaylee (age 11) and Olivia (age 9) who are the winners of last season's Coloring Contest. They both did so good, we couldn't pick just one!
