Hampton's own Five-Alarm Festival, typically hosted annually by Hampton Fire & Rescue on the first or second Saturday of October, is back! This family-friendly festival features firefighting equipment, fire safety information, and for the children, a bounce house, an obstacle course, face painting, a balloon artist and more. The festival and refreshments are free!

Don't forget to meet Pyper, Hampton’s accelerant-detecting dog!

One major goal of the festival is to increase awareness of fire dangers and to promote fire safety through educational and preventive activities. Cooking is the leading cause of home fires and home injuries, followed by heating fires.

Each year Hampton Fire and Rescue offers free home safety surveys and does a door-to-door campaign targeting residential areas where fires have occurred more frequently. The division also has a free smoke detector program
