Fire Prevention

 

 

FIRE PREVENTION

 

Fire prevention is a function of many fire departments.

Fire prevention is a proactive method of reducing emergencies and the damage caused by them.

The goal of fire prevention is to educate the public to take precautions to prevent potentially harmful fires.

 

 

Fire prevention information will routinely be posted on our Facebook page.

Delivering Information

Fire prevention education can take the form of videos, pamphlets, banners and on-line messaging through social media.

Often, the messages and lessons are simple tips.

 

2 examples of  important lessons and messages include:

Stop, Drop and Roll

If someone's clothing catches on fire, the most effective method of extinguishing the fire is to stop, drop to the ground, and roll back and forth to smother the flame.

Running around will simply fan the flames.

 

Smoke Detectors

Working smoke detectors reduce the chances of death in a fire by half.

Deaths due to fire have decreased by half since the invention of the smoke detector.

Most deaths due to fire occur at night when people are sleeping.

The most common cause of smoke detector failure is missing or disconnected batteries.

Firefighters Are Your Friends

 

One of the most critical jobs of a firefighter is search and rescue.

For young children, it is important that firefighters are seen as people they can follow and trust.

A firefighter in full gear breathing with an air tank can be scary.

One way children can get used to or trust a firefighter is seeing a firefighter in full gear, seeing that it is a person inside.

This is the reason firefighters wear full gear during school visits.

 

Don't Play With Fire

Fire Prevention is good for us all.
