Fire Prevention and Fire Safety are two of the most important parts of a firefighter's job. It is very important that we teach members of the public, of all ages, the facts and skills they need to keep safe and prevent fires and other accidents from happening.
To the right, you will find a collection of videos, so please explore! There is a lot of helpful information here. Parents, please work with your children in explaining the information in the videos, and help them understand the importance of the lessons.
Big kids are curious about fire. Teaching your children about the hazards of playing with matches and other flammable materials, as well as practicing a fire escape route with your family, can help prevent accidents and injuries. Fires resulting from children’s play are the leading cause of residential fire-related death and injury among children ages 9 and under.
Also, many children are scared by fire, and they may hide or act irrationally, making escape unlikely. Planning and practicing a fire escape route with your family and talking to your children about what to expect in a fire are simple steps anyone can take. A prepared child is more likely to escape unharmed.
