Education in Our Schools

For over 25 years, the Fire Department Public Education Committee has been educating over 3,500 students in the community on fire safety.  Annually, firefighters / paramedics enter every elementary school and educate every kindergarten through sixth grade class.  Fire personnel teach the students how to act safely in an emergency.  Some keystones include:  staying low in smoke; Get Out and Stay Out; calling 911; smoke detectors; Stop, Drop and Roll; and creating a home escape plan.
