Learn how we're accomplishing this mission through fire safety education

SAFire Backdraft is a group of fire service professionals that perform live music within a mission of providing fire safety education.  Our presentations feature culturally-diverse musical selections in between talks on fire safety.  Sparky the Fire Dog, as well as other service-providing partners, are often guests in our overall presentations on such specifics as smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, home fire escape plans, and seasonal fire safety tips.  As a volunteer organization, SAFire Backdraft is dedicated to providing vital fire safety education to a growing and vibrant San Antonio Community that we are proud to represent!

Saving Lives Through Fire Safety Education

As the great universal language, music inspires as well as entertains a positive atmosphere for our messages.  The Backdraft Band features cultural diversity in their musical selections to appeal to a wide range of audiences.

SAFire Backdraft serves to make a difference




Our program goal is to bring the community together within our public education mission. SAFire Backdraft's performances have a positive and celebratory tone as the community's keeper for fire safety.
  • Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors save lives. Every home should have at least one and the resources available in San Antonio makes this our objective!
  • Seasonal activities create specific dangers we see as fire service pros. SAFire Backdraft identifies the dangers with organic Christmas trees, turkey fryers, campfires, and fireworks. We are your community connection to the SAFD.


​ We're looking forward to October Fire Prevention Month!  We will be at HEROFest on Sunday, Oct. 8 (11 am) at Comanche Park #2!   Also, we are looking forward to our core mission events in performing at Behlau Elementary School and the SAFD Health and Safety Fair on Oct. 21 at Crossroads mall!

To deliver community fire safety education in a musical performing arts program requires many volunteer resources of time, talent, and equipment. We've got many successes under our belt, but we need more help, and that's where you come in!
