PUBLIC SAFETY DAY
Join us each September or October for Public Safety Day at City Park, 300 Franklin Rd. This outdoor festival provides a fun atmosphere for families and children to learn about #firesafety.
Station ToursWhat is it like to live at a fire station? Take a peek inside! Station tours are available to families or small groups upon request.
Engine DemonstrationsOne of our favorite programs, an engine visit is a great way to teach kids fire safety while having fun. Engines are available to visit schools and make birthday party visits, as long as there isn't an emergency call.
Children will learn what firefighters do, can climb inside the cab and will receive a fire helmet.
Fire Sprinkler DemonstrationDid you realize that for 1.5% of the cost of your home, you can protect your house with fire sprinklers? Unlike the movies, usually,only one or two sprinklers deploy to put out a fire. They do not go off when the fire alarm is activated unless heat is present. If you are interested in learning more, we can demonstrate fire sprinklers using a small trailer that will be brought to your group or neighborhood.
Fire Safety House
Great Escape ProgramDid you know that fires are the leading cause of death from unintentional injuries for children between the ages of one and four years old? The Great Escape Program by the Burn Prevention Network encourages families to make and practice a fire escape plan. In return for completing a fire safety plan, children receive coupons for meals or other rewards.
Fire Extinguisher ClassesDuring an emergency is the last place a person should learn how to use a fire extinguisher. While most people have access to a fire extinguisher at home or at work, few have training. During this class participates will not only practice extinguishing fires, they will also learn about types of fire extinguishers and limitations.
Smoke Detector Installation and Home Safety ChecksThe National Fire Protection Association reports that in almost half of all home fires no working smoke detectors were present. If you know of a family that may need help installing a smoke detector due to finances or physical limitations, we can help. The department also offers free home safety checks to help catch potential hazards before a fire starts.
I.C.E. - In Case of Emergency
If you are alone, and unconscious or seriously injured in an accident, how are responders to know critical medical information? How are your loved ones to know about your situation? By following these recommendations, you can program your phone to talk to us when you can't.
